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.

Loki, Dog of Mischief

INDogs Gucci and Teddy now have a baby 'brother': pretty golden Loki recently joined the Menezes family in Nasik.

Everyone knows the name Loki after the Thor and Avenger movies; but long before Marvel and Hollywood fame Loki was famous as a trickster and god of mischief in Norse mythology.  This little Loki looks rather gentle but no doubt he'll live up to the name, like all puppies! 

'Loki is the fourth addition to my family, and the third Indy,' writes Stephanie. 'I rescued him from being run over, and in spite of searching for his mother for over three hours, couldn't locate her. 

'Gucci and Teddy have started playing with him a little and he's totally at ease in his new home.'

So heart-warming to hear of another lucky puppy. I dream of a perfect future when no more pups will be born on the street; but while they still are I hope there will be many more kind people to take them in!
