Can anything be cuter than this (except another Indy pup of course)!!

Read about Vijay Raghunathan's adorable INDog-mix Muffin in his description below. And note how the same traits are described by so many owners - intelligent, loving, protective towards owners.

'She was rescued from the streets by a NGO in Bangalore - "Lets Live Together" and has been living with us for 4 months now,' writes Vijay.

'I agree with you on the various perspectives about this breed - she is extremely loving, playful, intelligent, sensitive and very friendly with people and other animals. Yet, even at this age of 6 months when she senses a threat, she becomes very protective of the family and the home.

'It is such a pleasure to wake up or go back home and be greeted by a bundle of fur. Even if it is for a few hours she hasn't seen us, the treatment is the one reserved for someone who hasn't been seen for years together. '

He looks almost like my Bhulo who I had rescued from the streets of Kolkata. Muffin looks most lovable. Good to know he now has a caring home and family.
