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.

Pups survive fire, need good homes

These tiny pups survived a tragic accident in a Delhi residential society recently.

The litter had been kept in an empty junk room by their mother, to shelter them from the rain. Two small children aged 3 and 5 got hold of a box of matches and accidentally set fire to the old clothes among which the pups had been hidden. Neighbours rushed there on seeing the smoke, and managed to put out the fire with water. The pups were all taken to Dr Premlata Choudhury.

One was severely burned and died, but two have survived and are now in foster care.
Sadly the three year old girl is very traumatized by the incident and refuses to leave her home or talk to anyone.

The pups now need permanent homes. Those interested in adopting one or both, should contact Dr Choudhury on drpremlatachoudhary1@gmail.com
