I'm a landrace dog fancier and birder. 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.

Minal Browny

Meet Minal Browny, thunder-puppy!

She was sitting in the middle of the Bangalore highway when Velmurugan passed her on his bike. He picked her up and searched without success for her mother. The pup was probably abandoned. 

'She was little and I couldn't leave her in the street as she would definitely have died. So I adopted her. At the beginning of the day she was very fearful, but after that she was very active. Her eyes are really beautiful.'

Most people would have passed by and left her there on the highway. Lucky little Minal met one of the rare humans who cared. 

'My family named her Browny,' says Velmurugan. 'But she is a fast sprinter so I named her Minal, which means "thunder" in Tamil. Minal Browny.'

The first photo below was clicked after her adoption on 26 March, and more recent ones follow. She plays a lot and like all puppies loves chewing things (and her humans!)
