Dogs in the Himalayan region are likely to be mixed with indigenous mountain breeds. It will be interesting to see what Shadow looks like when he grows up.
Kunga sent his photos and adoption story:
I was thinking for a long time that I'd like to raise a dog and was considering buying a Eurobreed, but then one day I saw this little buddy outside the gym where I go to work out here in Shimla. The pup was trembling with cold. I picked him up and decided at that very moment to raise this little rascal at home.
His name is Shadow.
What I feel is that if I raise him there will be more awareness among people to raise Indies rather than Eurobreeds. If more of us do that we can bring about a big change.
After spending days reading about INDogs I learned that they are among the oldest breeds in human history, very intelligent and friendly to humans and children.
There are many misconceptions among people that INDogs are not pure breeds and that they are not intelligent. We have to create awareness. With neutering and awareness and also adoption, I hope one day there will be no street dogs but only Dogs.
