Dodra, Himachal Pradesh, India, 17 December 2016, 1130 hours:
I have seen many types of dogs in Himachal during my travel all these years. But the dogs here at Dodra are so big and strong that they can even fight with wild animals if needed, including leopards and bears. The thick coat of fur around the chest and the neck makes them look like lions or maybe a Tibetan mastiff puppy. Even though these dogs are very friendly to humans and remain very calm, one should think twice before poking their nose into these dogs’ business.
