http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/pariahdog.htm Here is an article on the Indian Pariah dog, the dog Andreas apparently saw wandering the streets in India and admired.

Yeah they sound docile as cows.... :-)


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. The dog is best described as an “urban wild animal “. The dogs have learned over time to become docile towards people because like beggars, these dogs depend on hand outs of leftovers. Generally speaking, these dogs are hyper dogs and in most cases cannot be pulled off the streets and trained to obey humans. 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.
