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.

Nimbu and friends

Remember Nimbu, Rheea Mukherjee's fawn-like INDog pup with huge eyes and ears? 

She was adopted through an animal rescuer called Debadrita in Bangalore. 

She's grown up elegant and gorgeous, as expected. And she's a very lucky girl. Her doting human does everything she can to make Nimbu's life as interesting and exciting as possible.

'Loving, bratty, she can be testy with some dogs,' writes Rheea. 'Loves to explore and loves chicken (in spite of her mother-owner being vegetarian), loves curd and Marie biscuits. 

She can run up a storm and does not like being left alone for 5-6 hours at a time without a walk, affection and an outing.

She goes to the dog park once a week to run and goes for car rides with us every evening to pick up groceries. She enjoys the stimulation.'

I love that this busy urban pet parent, living and working in a big city, still manages to put in the time and effort to give her INDog the kind of life she needs. Look at the beautiful photos below, of Nimbu's outings. So nice to see a happy dog!
