Abhi is an Indian Pariah dog aka Indian Native/Desi dog who was rescued from the streets of India and flown to the U.S. for a chance at adoption. Please scroll at the bottom to get details on this breed.

Abhi was born on the streets of New Delhi, India and was rescued as a sole survivor of his litter. He lived at a shelter as a little pup until our rescue decided to fly him to NJ for a chance at adoption. "Abhi" on its own in ancient poetic Sanskrit means the first ray of sunlight. This sweet pup is so kind spirited, playful and handsome that one look at him will brighten anyone's day.

Abhi is a very special pup! He is a gorgeous IN dog who is perfect medium size at around 30 pounds. He's so smart and curious and will always be the fastest dog at the doggie park. His verve and big personality (being just over 12 months) make him super entertaining and best suited for an active family who will take him for daily long walks. Abhi isn't high energy, and actually sleeps a lot of the time, but he becomes bored pretty easily and panics when he is crated so a family where someone is home all day is needed. Since Abhi loves other dogs and loves to play a home with another friendly and active dog would be a great. Poor Abhi had a rough start--was born on the streets of New Delhi and underwent a surgery this past year for a broken leg yet he has such a loving and happy personality. Do you think you have room in your pack for this friendly pup?

Abhi is healthy, up to date on all vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. Please email for an Adoption Application.

Information on the Indian Native Dog breed:
IN (Indian Native), Desi (Local) or Pariah Dog 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.
IN 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.

IN 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 12 – 16 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 few couple of years, we have successfully rescued, rehabilitated and found homes over 300 IN dogs throughout the Northeast United States and more recently in the West coast.

About Rescue Without Borders

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescue Without Borders (R.W.B.) is a small animal rescue based in NJ that rescues animals in need domestic and abroad.

Our Motto- Every Dog Deserves a Good Home, No matter what breed or where they come from.

Love knows no boundaries. We do not discriminate; we will rescue the Underdogs, be it in the U.S. or abroad.
Currently we are focusing our rescue efforts on two types of Under Dogs- The American Staffordshire/Pit Bull Terrier or Pit Bull mix that we pull from the local shelters in the U.S; and on the international front the dogs from the streets of India called the Pariah Dogs, IN (Indian Native) Dogs or Desi Dogs.
R.W.B. family believes in opening our hearts and homes to the abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats irrespective of their location, age, sex, breed or size.

We rescue animals from terrible conditions and hence have them live with their foster family for couple of weeks during which time they receive not only veterinary care but also socialization and training. Since our rescued pets live with us for a long time we get to know them intimately which enable us to place them in a forever home that is just right for them. We can help you choose a dog to adopt based on whether his personality is a good match for you and your household/lifestyle.

Our foster pets' health is our priority #1. We do not spare any expense when it comes to caring for our rescued pets. They not only get best veterinary care for their specific medical needs, timely vaccinations, vitamins and high quality nutritious food but we also do a blood and stool test to ensure that they are completely healthy prior to adoption. All our rescued pets that are six months and older are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Our international rescued pets fly to the U.S. with an International Health Certificate, medical paperwork and required documents. They are all healthy and Vet checked prior to adoption.

Our rescue also focuses on educating foster parents, adopters and others on importance of feeding nutritious food, socialization, training and daily exercise of their pet. Spay/Neuter to prevent unwanted litters of both dogs and cats is paramount.

We are very proud to be a Rescue without borders. So, what does it mean to be a rescue without borders?
We rescue and adopt within the U.S. irrespective of state borders, but now you may be wondering, why India? What would be the reason to bring dogs from another country when there are so many homeless dogs in the U.S.? Typically in India, dogs that are born on the streets are not kept as family pets. Most people cannot afford to keep a dog as a pet and those who do prefer a western breed as a status symbol. So these street dogs spend their entire lives on the streets in miserable conditions with no chance of ever finding a home.

We work hard to make people aware of the plight of homeless dogs in the local shelters and also in the developing countries like India. We focus our rescue efforts specifically on the dogs that are unable to survive on the streets; like orphaned pups, injured, sick or abandoned dogs. Pups born on the streets have little chance of survival where they most often get killed by vehicles or are victims of cruelty or die of hunger and malnutrition. We rescue, rehabilitate and bring these animals to good health and give them a chance at finding loving homes where they can live a happy, healthy and a safe life which otherwise would never be possible living on the streets. The average life span of these dogs on the street is well under five years during which time they suffer the effects of poor nutrition, harsh weather conditions and abuse from people. However as a house pet they become happy, loving, gorgeous companion dogs where they live a healthy life of 16+ years. On the streets it is the survival of the fittest so Indian Pariah IN/Desi dogs are born to be extremely hardy, intelligent and quick learners - if they weren't they wouldn’t survive on the streets!

In the 5 past year we have successfully rescued, rehabilitated and founds homes for over 250 streets dogs of India throughout the Northeast.

We also rescue our own Underdogs the Pit bulls or Pit bull type dogs from kill shelters in the U.S. and find them right homes where they will thrive as family companions. Through our rescue work we educate and raise awareness to dispel the misconception about this breed.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a Rescue not a Shelter and hence we do not have a physical location. All our adoptable pets are in various foster homes in different states/country.

If you are interested in meeting any of our pet please email us at to make an appointment to visit them in their foster homes.

Our Adoption Process...

We want to ensure that not only the pet that we rescue goes to a good home, but also the dog that the family is wanting to adopt is right for them. When there is a good match between the two the adoption is successful and everyone involved is happy.

To ensure successful adoption, we adhere to the following adoption process-

When you see a pet that you like please email us at As soon as we get your email we will answer any questions you might have and also email you an Adoption Application. After we receive a completed Adoption application back from you, we will give you a call to discuss your application, give you more information and answer your questions. Once all your references are checked and your application is approved we will set up an appointment for you to meet the pet in his/her foster home. After meeting the pet if you decide to adopt, you can then go ahead and official adopt the pet by filling out an Adoption Contract. You might be able to take the pet home with you the same day but we reserve the right to a home visit either before or after the adoption to ensure that the pet goes to a good home. After adoption we keep in touch with the family to provide any support needed to ensure that the pet is transitioned into their new home and the adoption is a success.

We believe training helps ensure sucessful adoption. A well behaved dog is a happy dog in a happy home. Attending formal obedience training classes with your dog is a must. It not only teaches the new dog to know the rules of the house but also helps establish a bond with their new people.

Please note that the adoption donation requested defers for every pet and is higher for the dogs rescued from India due to the cost of transportation and medical cost incurred in rescuing that pet. Please inquire about the adoption fees/donation at the beginning of the adoption process.
