About Me

Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. Before that, worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai from 1993-2007. Also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation.

This blog is for aboriginal breed enthusiasts. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Only INDogs (Indian Pariah) and INDog-mix mongrels are featured here. The two are NOT the same, do please read the text on the right to understand the difference. Our aim: to create awareness about the primitive natural breed called the Indian Pariah Dog/INDog. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too.

Another happy-ever-after INDog story!

Jayasree's Bakalu was one of the first Indian Pariah Dog Club members to be featured in this blog. He's a real beauty, you can see his 2007 posts here, here and here.

A year ago their family was joined by an equally pretty new member: INpuppy Nantu.

"He is a charming playful puppy. Though no more a Puppy now," writes Jayasree. "Someone had thrown him in front of our gate last December, when he was less than a month old."

"Initially we were afraid Bakalu might hurt the puppy, but surprisingly he accepted the little one as his own brother and they are happy pals now!"

These pictures were taken when Nantu was about 8 months old. These two obviously adore each other! I believe it's healthy for dogs to have canine companions, either in their own home or else as friends that they meet regularly. INDogs seem particularly social dogs.

Looking forward to more pictures of this beautiful pair, Jayasree!
