Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. I'm also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai for 14 years.

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.

Adoptions - we can all help. It only takes a few minutes!

While it's heartwarming to read all the happy stories in this blog, please let's not forget that only a tiny fraction-of-a-fraction of the Indy population actually get good homes. There are lots of vulnerable pups and kittens out on our mean streets, getting drenched in the rain, getting crushed by cars, getting kicked around by subhuman people. With a little help from us many can get adopted. How much time does it take for us to share a link on Facebook or our other social networks? Surely we can all spare a few minutes for this simple task that might just change an animal's life.

In the "Links" section of this blog you will find a list of blogs and sites of which many are dedicated to adoption of street pups and kittens. Below are a few of these sites, all run by wonderful people who work tirelessly to find homes for animals. Please circulate these links and do your bit to support their efforts! Share them once a month, email them to your friends, tell people about them! These animals are no less deserving than the beautiful pet dogs with whom we share our lives.
