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.

This handsome young INDog-mix belongs to Lalita Iyer. I love his pale eyes and serious expression!

Lalita shared his story and photos:

Momo before adoption

Momo is our six-month old INDog-mix male. We adopted him over a month ago from CUPA in Bangalore. He was rescued by a good samaritan at four months when he had his leg injured in a car hit. 

He is all fine now and as naughty and active as a six-month old should be.

He has an extremely affable personality...loves to play with everyone, people and dogs!

Momo with his friend Kariya, a free-roamer who stays part-time at in my brother's compound

He doesn't bark much...though when he does he has a lovely deep-throated bark. However this makes him just perfect for apartment living! He has absolutely turned our lives around and we cannot imagine how we ever survived before he came into them! He is indeed a true blessing.
