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.

Rico and Lucky: Christmas album
These beautiful siblings were rescued and adopted by Gino when he was living in Hyderabad. They all shifted to San Francisco over a year ago.
Read their story here.
"Rico and Lucky have been absolutely wonderful and have adjusted to the U.S. and to San Francisco beautifully," Gino writes. "There is not a day that goes by that people stop and stare at Rico and Lucky, trying to figure out what kind of breed they are and admiring them for their sleek bodies, super shiny coats, confident stride, alert attention, and their overall unique 'desi-ness.' When we go to one of the many 'dogs only' parks here in San Francisco, so many other dog owners are impressed by them and always ask me what kind of dogs they are and I end up telling them the short version of their story."
More of their Christmas pictures below!
Unlike Rico and Lucky, my Lalee simply can't bear clothes! I'm trying to imagine what she would do if I dressed her in anything. Probably tear her clothes to shreds! She hates her raincoat and barely tolerates the winter coat I got her for Nagaon.
Below: This one is of their Halloween costumes - Rico is a Yellow Submarine and Lucky is a Yellow Bumblebee!
