About Me

My photo
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.

Haseena the belle

Aptly-named Haseena ("beautiful girl") belongs to Shafique and Zeisha and has just joined the Club.

This lovely Mumbai INDog-mix joined the growing ranks of pampered pet Indies in March 2009, when this kind couple
stumbled upon her in a car junkyard-cum-garage.

"We found her as a 4-week old puppy sitting in a junk car's body in Kurla," writes Shafique. "I think her sibling was run over and she was abandoned by her mother maybe."

Haseena now lives like a princess, as she and all Indies deserve. "Very loyal, loving, possessive, jealous and extremely naughty...Hangs out with our cats and loves going for long drives and to the beach."

Looking forward to more pictures of this lovely girl, and many more happy-ever-after stories like this one!
