The dogs found on the Indian streets are referred as Indian Pariah Dog.
The word pariah is derived from a Tamil word first used in English in 1613, to refer to the lowest level of the traditional Indian caste system; in English, it is used to mean "a social outcast”. The Indian feral dog was considered an outcast as well. The term "pariah" when referring to feral or wild dogs of the Indian feral dog type is sometimes replaced with primitive, in the sense of "relating to an earliest or original stage or state" or "being little evolved from an early ancestral type". It is assumed that dogs placed in "pariah" or "primitive" groups are of an older type than other modern dog breeds. Future genetic testing may show the actual heredity of these breeds or types.

Not many people know that The Indian Native Dog (INDog) is an ancient autochthonous (landrace) type of dog. It was featured some years ago on National Geographic Channel's film, 'Search for the First Dog'...ref. Wikipedia

These dogs extremely alert, social and are capable to adapt and survive in the extreme conditions of the environment changes. When in today’s scenario people love pets especially dogs, they pay hefty amount to buy the best pure breed of dogs, yet are not willing to support the stray dogs. Adopting the stray dogs in India could give a good life to Indian street dogs and also create a whole new prospect of loving dogs and one of its kind setting examples of giving a change to the dogs which need little love after all.

Must watch outstanding Dog Movies:
