Overview

Rajapalayam is a large sighthound breed that originated in the town of Rajapalayam in Tamil Nadu, India. They were originally bred for hunting wild boar and are known for their exceptional courage and loyalty.

Temperament

Rajapalayams are intelligent and independent dogs, but also fiercely loyal and protective of their family. They are known to be good with children and other pets when properly socialized. Rajapalayams are not recommended for first-time dog owners as they can be quite stubborn and require firm, consistent training. They are also known to be quite vocal and will bark if they sense any potential danger.

Lifespan

The average lifespan of a Rajapalayam is around 10-12 years.

Shedding

Rajapalayams have a short, smooth coat that requires minimal grooming. They shed moderately year-round and may require occasional brushing to keep their coat shiny and healthy.

Puppy

Rajapalayam puppies are generally very active and playful, and require lots of exercise and socialization. They should be properly socialized from a young age to prevent any potential aggression issues. As with all puppies, early training and consistent discipline is important to ensure that they grow up to be well-behaved, obedient dogs.

Rajapalayams make great family pets for experienced dog owners who have the time and patience to properly train and socialize them. They require regular exercise and mental stimulation to prevent boredom and destructive behavior.
