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.

Beautiful Sam belongs to Mansi Yalamalli Jaysal and her family. Another lucky pampered Indi whose owner realizes her worth and is proud of her origins.

"I love her to bits," writes Mansi. "I have never ever missed having a purebred dog and I am as proud of her as my neighbour is of his rottweiler. "

Sam shifted with the family from Bangalore to Chandigarh, and is now ten years old.
