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.

Samson and Achilles: an epic tale
So here we are back again with two beautiful Indy-mix dogs!
One of them featured in this blog a year ago: Samson the Hero. And here's a video, Samson in winter.
The second hero, gorgeous red-gold Achilles, appeared at the end of last year, again in Pune. And like Samson his fortunes changed when he met Lee and Kristin.
"Samson and Achilles were found (or each found us) within three meters of each other, two years separate in time," writes Lee.
Achilles made the journey to Minneapolis in December '11 and quickly settled down with his new 'siblings', Samson and the family cats.
Some pictures and videos to tell his story:
Above: Pune - just after rescue and a bath
Above: In Minneapolis. Look at that wagging tail!
Above, below: After a couple of days, the two become friends...

Above: Achilles looking sweet and innocent in sleep. Apparently this appearance is highly deceptive (so often is with dogs...)
Looking forward to more updates about these two!
