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.

Winter pups in Goa
"Su and I fell in love with some puppies on the beach where we were staying," Lindsay writes. These were in Palolem. They were due to be taken to an animal rescue shelter after being weaned, so let's hope they have good homes by now. As Lindsay said, Indian dogs are beautiful animals and in the UK would seem quite exotic as they are different to most of the breeds there.
I mentioned in the last post that most INDog pups are born in winter because of the synchronized seasonal mating in the late monsoon. Here's another example. I believe that free-ranging females observed to be in oestrus at any other season would probably be mix-breeds.
