Jugnu means a 'Firefly' in Hindi. He is certainly our shining boy!
Jugnu is a a very loving and easy going dog who we rescued from a shelter in India where he had no chance at finding a home. He is around seven months old and weights about 40 pounds. Jugnu is good with other dogs and loves playing with them. He is calm and gentle around kids. He loves playing with his toys and cuddling with his favorites toys while sleeping. He bonds strongly to his people, with strangers he appears aloof but as he gets to know them he warms up rather quickly. Jugnu is leash trained and loves to go on long walks. He also likes his crate and sleeps in it all night without a peep. Jugnu is house broken too.
Jugnu is fully vaccinated and neutered. He has a International Health certificate, blood and stool test report.
Please email Rescuewithoutborders@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting sweet Jugnu.
Information on the Indian Pariah Dog breed:
Indian Pariah Dog, IN (Indian Native) or Desi (Local) or is a pure, ancient, indigenous dog of India that abounds the Indian streets. A long time ago, thousands of years before the arrival of modern pure breeds, a race of dogs much like this one inhabited the Indian subcontinent. These were the very first domesticated dogs and Man's earliest animal companions. It has evolved entirely through natural selection without human intervention of any kind resulting into a very hardy, extremely intelligent, alert and independent thinking dog.
This is a natural breed of dog that is pure in a true sense and how nature intended a dog to be; hence they are way superior to the artificially developed man made breeds that we call pure breeds today. Its origin dates back 12,000 to 15,000 years – older than any other breed. This is a natural primitive breed which is a direct descendant of the early domesticated dogs. These dogs are found to be genetically healthy with no known genetic diseases and a very strong immune system. They are perfectly adapted for survival; a free-roaming life on the street for these dogs is always difficult and often hostile and hence requires high order of intelligence, quick and independent thinking to survive. On the streets it is the survival of the fittest, usually out of a litter some will get run over by cars while others will succumb to hunger and malnutrition. Only the most hardiest and intelligent ones will survive to produce off springs. When this survivor is adopted as a Pet, their owners are often awe struck with their beauty, grace, intelligence, loyalty and hardiness.
They are highly adaptable, quick learners and versatile and are known to be even smarter and definitely calmer than the intelligent Border Collies. They are very agile and excel at many dog sports such as agility and also make great jogging/running companions and can be even faster than Grey Hounds. While active outdoors, they are usually very calm and quiet indoors. They have tremendous stamina and hence need an active family who will take them for a daily brisk walks or a run.
Indian Pariah Dogs are sensitive by nature and do not respond well to harsh training methods and hence need an even tempered, gentle but firm and loving owner who knows how to calmly and consistently communicate the rules of the house.
These dogs love children and are known to have a calm and gentle demeanor around them. They bond strongly with their people and make an excellent family pet that is very loving, loyal and intelligent. These dogs do not bark much but are always alert; they are friendly yet wary of strangers and make good watch dogs.
Indian Pariah Dogs are low maintenance dog as they are generally very healthy and like to stay clean; they hardly shed and have virtually no doggy odor. Their smooth, fine short hair coat is easy to groom. They have an all-weather coat that allows them to easily adapt to different weather conditions.
A well-looked after pet IN dog will rarely need to see a vet and may live a healthy life of up to the age of 14 – 18 years.
This is a medium size dog with an average height of 20-25 inches (51-64 cms) at the shoulder and generally weigh about 28-55 pounds (12 – 22 kgs).
They are found in all colors and variation with erect or floppy ears; however a typical IN Dog usually will have erect ears, a wedge-shaped head and a tail that curls over its back. Most IN Dogs are similar in appearance to other prehistoric dogs like the Australian Dingos.
In the last couple of years we have successfully rescued, rehabilitated and found homes over 200 Pariah dogs throughout the Northeast United States and more recently in the West coast.
