Notes
 

The Chippiparai is a breed of dog from the south of India, particularly the area around Periyar Lake. It is used primarily for hunting wild boar, deer and hare. It is said to be an excellent hunter, and is also used for guarding the home. The typical colour is a silver-grey, with very limited, or no white markings. This is a very handsome dog, being tall (27-32 inches at the withers) and powerful. The breed is very rare and difficult to find, it is limited to the isolated villages such as Vandi Periyar. It may be lost soon if steps are not taken to ensure its survival in its natural habitat.
