I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. I'm also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai for 14 years.

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.

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.
