I read on the net and found that Indian stray dog, named pariah goes into heat once a year during mating season August - Jan. Their gestation period is 2 months so November- December is when most pups are born.

But why do pariahs, unlike most others go into heat once, and all at the same time?

You can read about their mating season in Wikipedia. I could not find the explanation. Thank you.

    Basenji's are the same way; typically one litter a year, about the same time as your Indian Pariah's... so, this might be (simply) a breed trait.

  • @trondhansen sorry. I asked two separate questions why pups are born togethor and why they go into heat once but since I edited and asked both in that one, what should I do with this question sir? Should I delete it? Oct 25, 2018 at 7:38
