Robert: The dogs in India that Andreas observed apparently did not form packs, and they existed harmoniously with each other and with humans.

http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/pariahdog.htm states that these dogs:

Generally speaking, The Pariah, much like the wolves live in packs and scavenge in packs. Because of this they are highly territorial. The concept of having an owner or being owned is beyond their psyche.

As for the Pariah Dogs harmoniously living with humans, the Web site tells us:

* They don’t interact well with other dogs, and have strong “wild” instincts which may not be desirable around children. The dog has not proven to be much of a “helper “to man as much as a scavenger.

* Because of their lack of medical care they can be carriers of rabies and other canine diseases. Also a lot of their health problems may be engendered by widely shared nutritional deficiencies.

* It is a high risk to introduce these dogs in the company of children because of the uncertainty that they may attack the child or make the child more vulnerable to disease.
