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.

Jaya victorious

Remember the four little pups that got burned in a fire started by some small children in Delhi?

The two survivors were put up for adoption a few months ago. You can see the adoption appeal

Finally only the black female survived. Thanks to AAIDD's Barbara Gard, she got a lovely home in Vancouver and grew into a beautiful INDog with a sweet personality.

But her first owner became movement-restricted and Jaya had to be rehomed.
"She soon found her new forever couple and was so content after her first visit that she stayed for the night and then forever," writes Barbara.

Her name is Jaya (
victorious). What could be more appropriate?

Her story in pictures below:
