Rajapalayam Dog Breeds
Also known as the Poligar Hound, the Rajapalayam is a large Indian Sighthound characterised by its pure white coat, its pink nose and its golden eyes. It was once the dog of choice for royalty and the nobility in Southern India. Used to hunt wild boar and hare, true Rajapalayam are tall and muscular. As with a number of native Indian dog breeds, it is considered by some that the impressive and traditional Rajapalayam is more or less extinct, with little more than a handful of pure bred dogs remaining. By the way, if you have a Rajapalayam and would be happy for your dog to feature on Dogipedia, please send us a photo using the form on the right.
