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.

Another member from Hyderabad.

Pretty INDog-mix Kheera is two and a half. Her owners Greta and Edward Mahon lived in Hyderabad for two years and adopted her from Blue Cross.
Kheera started life as a street puppy and was orphaned when she was only two weeks old.

"We fostered her and her two brothers since two weeks of age, because the mother was killed," writes Greta. "Found homes for the two boys and fell in love with the girl."

Kheera now lives with Greta and Edward in Kansas. It's easy to see why they couldn't part with her.

Enjoy the pictures!
My favourite is the play-bow, or perhaps it's a yoga asana!
