Vodka is a female Indian Pariah Dog who is around a year old. She is a gorgeous medium size dog weighing around 35-40 pounds.
Vodka is a sweet and sensitive pup who takes her time to get to know strangers. She feels more comfortable around women than men but when she knows them she tends to bond strongly. She is a love bug and loves to cuddle and sit in your lap. We are looking for a dog experienced family who has the patience, understanding and willingness to help build Vodka's confidence through socialization and training. Vodka needs a quite home with not too much activity or many visitors. A home with no small children is the best. She also needs a secure fully fenced in yard where she will be able to run freely and play. Vodka loves other dogs and seems to gain her confidence around a friendly dog; so a home who has another friendly, playful and confident dog will certainly help her come out of her shell sooner. Vodka also seems to be good with cats.
We are offering the adopters up to $200 in credit towards Vodka's training.
Vodka is an active pup who needs daily long walks and socialization. She loves going for walks and playing in the yard. She is always ready to play with the people she knows and other dogs. She is the happiest among company of playful dogs and enjoys going to the dog park. She is crate, leash trained and house broken. She is a smart girl and knows basic commands. She walks nicely on the leash without pulling.
Vodka is fully vaccinated, spayed, dewormed as well as microchipped. She also has a International Health certificate, blood and stool test report.

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.
