About Me

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.

Chica, Mexi-dog

Remember Mexican dogs Talla and Cricket? Here's another pretty girl from that part of the world. Meet Chica, a rescued pup from Cancun. She now lives with Shawn Forcier's family in Canada.

It has taken some time for this tropical pup to adjust to the cold Canadian winter.

Chica means 'beautiful baby girl' in Spanish.

"Chica is highly intelligent, very aware and attentive, very affectionate, as well as agile and fast on her feet with her long slender legs," writes Shawn. Sounds very like many Indies I know, specially the intelligent and aware part - common to pariah-type dogs everywhere!
