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.

Isn't Baltu absolutely adorable? She lives with lucky Anirbun Nandy and his wife.

'After the untimely death of my last pariah dog, whom I loved very much, luckily another one came to my house. I named her Baltu ("total nut"). Her date of birth is 31 December 1013. 

Baltu's mother was a street dog and like many of them was crushed by a speeding car, leaving the puppy alone at the tender age of one month or so. My wife and I brought her up with a feeding bottle.'
