About Me

My photo
Mumbai, India
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.

Anamika Rawal wrote in about her lovely pup Enna, adopted in Mumbai some months ago:

On March 31 on my way home from shopping, I met a friend and stopped to chat. 

Suddenly I realized something was going around my feet. And guess what - five or six cuties were playing on my feet, jumping. One was pulling my shoelace!! 

I can't describe how cute they were, and how tiny, hardly 30 days old. 

I was so excited I called my fiance to come and see the pups. His office is nearby. And I was so surprised when he immediately picked up one of the pups for me. Surprised because he never liked dogs, but he gave me this beautiful innocent creature. And he is madly in love with the puppy now!

We call her Enna. She's highly intelligent. I had a labrador and pomeranian in the past, but what they took six months to learn, Enna had done by 4 months. She's lovely, her energy level is incredible, she's super-alert, her patience is remarkable - although a little less than a labrador, yet she's much more patient than most dogs. She's joyful and playful, and so innocent she thinks all my visitors come home just to play with her!
