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.

Jaamu needs a new home

This pretty young mix-breed needs a new home. Please help him by sharing this appeal widely.

From his owner Irina Kharbanda:

"We live in Delhi. We`re going out of India and for legal reasons we`re not allowed to take our dog along. It`s in Australia`s policy that no animal is allowed to enter the country from India (http://www.daff.gov.au/aqis/cat-dogs/countries/cat6?name=India ).

We got Jaamu 2 years ago. He was 1 month old. My husband picked him up on a highway, else he would be crushed by trucks.

He is our family member. He is a non-vegetarian dog and enjoys his chicken very much. He is a naughty, lovable, active and healthy dog. Jaamu likes to run around and to play a tag game. Balcony is his favourite place at home. He likes to bathe in summer. He is absolutely fine with people, never ever bit or attacked anyone, but he becomes very excited and aggressive towards strange dogs. He is okay with puppies and grown-up dogs, if introduced properly.

Health stats: vaccinated, neutered, age: 2 years.

We really would like to give to someone who is an animal lover, will be able to understand Jaamu`s character and make him a happy dog."

What a good-looking dog. When I saw the thumbnail in my google reader, I thought it was Georgia!

Theres a dog in our neighborhood that was an Indian street dog. Remember I sent you the link? Don't know if it still lives here. I've never met it. Sounds like the law might have changed?

Yes he does look a bit like a furry Georgia! I remembered that link as soon as I got Irina's mail. Have forwarded it to her. Hope he can accompany them, poor boy.
