About Me

My photo
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

Jackie is the first Indy I know of in Russia! Isn't he handsome?

This lovely INDog is from Palolem, Goa, and now lives in St Petersberg with owner Maria Shuvarikova and her other dog Jess.

'There isn't an adoption story,' Maria said, when I asked her for one. "It is a sharing-breakfast love story. 

The boy is so adorable!'

Winter is coming, and soon the dogs will be in sweaters and boots! Here they are in the first snow in St Petersberg!
