INDogs of Jharkhand: Niky and Robin

These stunning INDogs are from Jharkhand. They belong to Prince Kumar and his family. Niky is the adult light brown female and the red-brown pup is Robin.

Their story, from Prince:

I adopted Niky from the roadside when she was a puppy. She was being hit by some ill-mannered children. My little sister asked me to save her, so I brought her to my home. 

Niky as a puppy

She is now one and a half years old. 

She is a very cute and playful dog, but very aggressive against strangers. 

The only thing she lacks is that she is not socialized to dogs. She hates other dogs. For this reason I decided to bring home a puppy to give her a friend. 

I adopted little Robin from a Santhal person's home. For a week I kept them separately as Niky was quite aggressive towards Robin. But now they are friends. 

In fact their friendship bond is so strong that if one is given a bath the other cries to request me not to give a bath. 

They are both trained with all the basic commands. Robin is about 2 months old.
