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.

LTPM dog as Thai dog prototype

This is an interesting article I found during a net search on Khun Thong Daeng, favourite pet of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand. Thong Daeng was born a street pup and gifted to the King. She's a perfect pariah-type dog with the same appearance as aboriginal dogs around the world (long-term pariah morphotype/LTPM).

Her royal owner has even written a book about her that became a bestseller in Thailand. Read about it here (column on the right of the main text).
