I'm a landrace dog fancier and birder. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. Before that, worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai from 1993-2007. Also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation.

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. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too.

Revisiting Arrow

Beautiful INDog-mix Arrow was on this blog last May; and Shelby sent an update about him some days ago. 

I love all the heart-warming adoption stories here, but Arrow's is particularly satisfying. I'll never forget his anxious little face in his early photos, when he was going from foster to foster. And look at him now, so happily settled with Sheldon, Aiden and their two cats! 

Shelby writes: 'It has been almost a year since Arrow entered our lives and we couldn't be happier. He is a wonderfully affectionate boy. He is very intelligent, and has become an excellent watch dog. He takes special pride in watching over us. He loves his walks, running in fields, and going on trips with us. We are overjoyed to have stumbled upon him and given him a home.'

Some photos, including lovely portraits with Aiden:
