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.

INDogs of Upper Assam and Eastern Arunachal Pradesh

From a recent journey to the North-East by Gautam Das, who incidentally is the person who coined the name "INDog" for our aboriginal desi dogs. If you haven't already visited the INDog site and read his article "The Indian Native Dog," here is the site link.
He photographed these beauties in Upper Assam (Tinsukhia District) and nearby parts of Arunachal Pradesh, in Changlang and Lohit Districts.
