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

Hello everyone! Meet Badshah, a gorgeous one-year-old INDog from Kolkata!

His proud human Priyam Kumar Dey sent in lots of adorable photos of him.

'Badshah was one of ten puppies that had been abandoned in a drain,' Priyam writes. 

A kind lady rescued them. They were about 18 days old. I adopted Badshah from her when he was a bit younger than 30 days old.

'He is a quick learner but an independent-minded dog. He learned sit, stay, fetch, and also got house-trained by the time he was three months old. 

He doesn't have separation anxiety either. He can stay on his own for a few hours without making a sound. 

He's good with kids, and doesn't run away when he is off-leash.

Badshah is quite a celebrity too! He's been featured in a book of funny poems about Indian dogs and cats, called "Marshall in my Rosogolla", by Smita Velkar. He's also been featured in a Facebook group called 'Tales from the Streets'. 

'Check out his photo album, from puppy days till now!'
