I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. I'm also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai for 14 years.

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.

Jackie in winter

































Or rather, 'Jackie in the St. Petersberg winter'. Very different from winter in Goa, where he was born.

So how is this gorgeous INDog coping with the cold? His human Maria Shuvarikova sent in recent photos. 


The weather outside

At the Gulf of Finland






















































He has grown a substantial undercoat, though his stomach is still fur-free; and he still refuses to wear anything warm. 'Hates coats and gets rid of them all. He just tears them apart', writes Maria.

He still seems as comfortable in the snow as he was last month (have a look at his first post here). I hope that if and when he does start to feel cold, he'll allow Maria to put a coat on him.

I LOVE these pictures, especially the ones of him at the Gulf of Finland!
