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.

This extremely sweet puppy with extremely large ears (and eyes) lives in Bangalore with owner Rheea Mukherjee.

For those who don't speak any Indian languages, her name means "lemon."

Nimbu was adopted from a rescue organization.

"I wanted to adopt an Indian pup since it made the most logical and emotional sense," says Rheea. "Once I made the decision to have a dog in the house, I knew I should adopt one. There are so many on the streets, it was time to take a step and make sure a pup got a safe home."

Nimbu is now three and a half months old and has got chubbier since her adoption three weeks ago. Look at those beautiful INDog eyes! She's going to be stunning when she grows up.
