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.

Batuk and Xela

This is the best portrait I've ever seen. The best.

Batuk and Xela live in Canada with Kristina Rapson. That's Batuk on the right and Xela on the left. 

Batuk is an INDog-mix, rescued by Kristina as a pup from the streets of McLeod Ganj, Himachal Pradesh. He loves his home in Canada. Kristina manages a dog boutique and cafe, so he also gets to go to work with her. He will be turning a year old on February 19.

On the left is Xela, Kristina's second dog, adopted from the street in Guatemala. 

And this is a puppy portrait of Batuk.
