  1. It is a bit disappointing to see that our Indie dogs do not find a mention here.Not only are they great home dogs,they are comfortable with children ,outdoors and easily adjustable and need minimum care.Most important,there are millions of these vulnerable furry balls of joy just asking for some love.
    I think they should be promoted most.
