I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. 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.

Nagaon dogs: Zanjeer

Nagaon is a seaside village near Alibag which we visit very often. In fact it's Lalee's and Bandra's second home.

Last year we found homes for two street dogs there: white INDog-Labrador mix Zanjeer, and INDog-heaven-knows-what mix Brownie. I have to thank my caretaker Gharat for his efforts to find good owners for WSD dogs.

As you can see from the photos in both the Nagaon dogs posts, these two are thoroughly enjoying the switch from city to country living.

Zanjeer lives very near my own house, his owner's name is Pandurang. WSD volunteer Rohan Mukerjee took these lovely photos of him on a recent visit.
