5 reasons why you should adopt independent dogs


We see Indian outcast or street dogs almost everywhere in India, and rightly so. The breed is native to the Indian subcontinent and can survive tropical weather.

On the other hand, the inhuman, unethical dog breeding industry produces millions of dogs each year and sold in pet stores for the right price.

Independent dogs – even with their friendly and affectionate attitudes – were not popular as pets. Centuries in the streets have left India aggressive. They bark and possibly show aggression towards strangers or unfamiliar dogs that enter their territory.

However, with increased awareness, many are now be interested in adopting independent puppies rather than going for cross breed dogs.

For Siberian Huskies and European Labradors, the tropical climate deteriorates their quality of life, their health and shortens their lifespan.

Small dogs love Beagles and Basset Hounds – often referred to as apartment dogs because of their size – are, in fact, hunting dogs that need constant stimulation and activity.

So, when adopting a dog, understand its lifestyle, nature, living conditions, as well as the budget for their maintenance becomes imperative.

Here are some reasons why often neglected independent dogs are a perfect addition to your family:

Adapt to the climate

The Indie dog is a naturally evolved breed and was shaped by natural selection. They are acclimatized to the tropical climate as they are native to and have lived in India for centuries. Thus, they are used to the Indian environment and can survive on other races.

Extremely healthy

Since independent dogs haven’t been bred for thousands of years, they are healthier than other breeds. Their size varies from 51 to 64cm at the withers and weighs between 12 and 20kgs.

Problems like hip dysplasia and obesity are extremely rare in these dogs. In fact, they have strong immune systems and can thrive on basic and regular check-ups, nutritious meals, and exercise.

Relatively low maintenance

The Indies require little maintenance in nature. They have a short, coarse coat and, as a result, shed little or no fur around their living space. Monthly baths and weekly brushing are enough to keep their coat in good condition.

Alert and intelligent

The streets have played an important role in the evolution of independent dogs. They are very alert and literally intelligent on the streets.

They adapt well to new places, and based on the experiences of several people, they are easier to train. While as a territorial breed, they can react aggressively towards unfamiliar dogs or people as adults, socialization helps keep their cool.

Equally affectionate and sensitive

The Indies are mainly known for their territorial nature, which makes them good watchdogs.

But their generally cheerful and social nature makes them very kind among people, and even develops a strong bond of loyalty with their family and owners.

Love an independent dog and he will love you abundantly.
