History

The breed has been around for over 300 years - loving humans and protecting them. The courage and intelligence of this breed were known for their exceptional skills at hunting tigers, panthers, deer, boar, and jackals. Ahmad Ali Khan, the Nawab of Rampur, took great interest in this fearless hunter and the breed flourished until the 1950s. Once the Maharajas were out of power, the breed’s popularity declined until very recently when the Prime Minister of India encouraged citizens of India to adopt rare, indigenous breeds.
