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.

Rupa and Ja bi

Ja bi is a gorgeous and pure Korean Jindo. And Rupa is a gorgeous INDog-mix rescue from Delhi. Both belong to pariah dog fan Sharon Squires. They live on a lovely farm in the US in a multi-species family!

Rupa is a recent addition but she quickly became friends with the resident queen Ja bi, as you can see from the photos. I particularly like the play fight and also the winter snaps - I always love those snow pics!

Sharon says Rupa makes enormous efforts to fit in with her new family, watching everyone carefully and changing her behaviour to please her 'pack'. Typical adaptable Indy! And a VERY lucky little girl, swapping the Delhi streets for these huge fields and woods. If I were religious I'd start believing in karma or something.
