About Me

Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. Before that, I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai from 1993-2007. Also a spider enthusiast and amateur arachnologist.

This blog is for aboriginal dog enthusiasts. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Only INDogs (Indian Pariah Dog) and INDog-mixes (Indies) 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 landrace village dog of the Indian subcontinent. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too. Also see padsociety.org

I love raven-black dogs; and you can't get more raven-black than Jazzy!

This beautiful little INDog-mix was adopted by Vandana Deshpande Vaidya in Bangalore in mid-2013. She has featured on our Facebook INDog page a few times, but never on this blog, so here are two of her early photos.

Jazzy and Vandana's other dog, GSD Sasha, recently shifted with her to the US (upstate NY). 
'It was a roller coaster journey, but finally all's well,' writes Vandana.

There was an ecstatic reunion with Vandana's husband who had gone there earlier. 


Here they are, wondering what that cold white stuff is all over the landscape!
