About Me

My photo
Mumbai, India
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.

This is Orbit, a beautiful INDog-mix belonging to John Kerr and Kim Chung.

Orbit was born in the Filmnagar neighbourhood of Hyderabad in the early '90s. Before his adoption at the age of 3 months he lived in a construction site. When he was three years old he shifted to Washington with his owners.

"Washington is a dog-loving town," John writes, "We couldn't walk more than a block without someone stopping us and telling us what a beautiful dog we had and wondering where they could get one like it."

Orbit is now fifteen and a half and lives in East Lansing, Michigan. I love these photos of him posing with tulips and clematis.
