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.

Presenting Coffee, a very handsome Indy-mix belonging to Meena and Nolin Chitnis. He's new on this blog but you can see his images and videos on our Facebook Indog Club Page.

Coffee was born in Pune. Nolin went there to adopt him after seeing his adoption appeal on Facebook. He was a one-month old puppy at the time.

Since his adoption he's been living with Nolin and Meena in Thane.

"Coffee keeping a watch on Meena who is taking a nap nearby," writes Nolin of this picture. This is at their beach house in Gujarat.

He's obviously a very alert watchdog, and he's also proved to be extremely tolerant of little pups and young dogs.

The perfect dog in fact - like most Indies!
