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.

Introducing our INpuppy Kiba.

We picked him up on the Alibag bypass road, very close to Nagaon, on 24 October.

He was just about four weeks old at the time, but it seemed riskier to leave him there than to take him home.

Kiba is ten weeks old now. His ears have been lifting for some time, and yesterday the left one finally went up.

It's tough to get good pictures of him because he's rarely still except when sleeping. But there are some nice ones with Kimaya. More in a later post.

Thanks Sarah! Isn't he a sweetie? He was a butterball when we picked him up :-) Kimaya and he play (and fight) all day long and he's already winning some of the tugging games.
