In India, dog breeders have for the last 50 years focused solely on their ability to work, especially in the case of Working Dogs. If at all considered, pedigree and pure blood were of little concern. Additionally, dogs have not usually been a part of Indian literature, which usually gives all dogs simultaneously. Research into the origin of native breeds such as Chipiprai is only in its infancy. These factors combine to make it extremely difficult, if not impossible to say much about the origin of most Indian breeds, such as Chipiprai. In the case of Chippiparai, it can be said with certainty that the breed is traditionally found in the oldest parts of the Indian subcontinent, especially in the states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala, and is a kind of genius dog. Something more has been said about its origin that it is little more than pure speculation. It is safe to say that this breed is probably very closely related to other native eighth breeds of India, Rampur Greyhound, Kanni, Mudhol Hound, Kambai and Rajapalayam, but the exact relationship between these breeds is unclear. One of the greatest mysteries around Chipiparai is the age of the breed. Chippiparai is almost certainly a very old breed, but it could have been developed anywhere from several hundred to several thousand years ago.
Of the many possible fundamentals for chipping, three are the most likely. Most sources claim that Chippiparai is similar to Saluki and probably a descendant of that breed. The saluki is perhaps the oldest purebred dog in the world, with archaeological evidence suggesting that the breed was first developed by ancient Egypt and ancient Mesopotamia 7,000 years ago. It has long been proven that Saluki was the ancestor of all kinds of wounds, and that this breed spread to the ancient world with trade and conquest. Saluki has long been extremely popular in Arabia and Persia, where it is considered distinct from all other breeds. India has been in close contact with Arabia and Persia for thousands of years, providing ample opportunities for the introduction of Saluki. The region where Chippiprai flourished is one of the regions in India that traditionally had the least contact with the Middle East, presenting Saluki perhaps not directly from his homeland but indirectly from northern India. had gone.
In recent years, genetic tests have shown that the Satuids may not have all descended directly from Saluki, but were developed independently several times throughout history in various locations, including the British Isles and the Maghreb. Such a place was almost certainly on the grounds that today include Afghanistan and the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. The region is home to several ancient eighth breeds such as Taigan, Tazi, Afghan Hound and Horta Borsaya. The Indian subcontinent probably has far more contacts and connections with Central Asia, often a turbulent relationship that was also recorded in India's earliest records. Chippiparai and other Indian lighthouses, in this writer's opinion, are largely similar to Central Asian lighthouse than Saluki, and the long history of contact makes it more likely that Indian breeds are likely descended from Central Asian dogs. . It is also very possible that Chippiparai and other native Indian breeds were developed entirely from local dogs. India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world, with the mysterious Indus Valley Civilization reaching its peak at about the same time as Egypt and Mesopotamia. It is very possible, and in this writer's opinion, very likely that the ruling nobles of the Indus Valley Civilization (also known as Harappans) developed their Hunting Dogs, much like the Westerly contemporaries. These Harappan Hunting Dogs may very well be the victim of an eighth wound, and possibly the ancestor of all Indian eighth breeds.
