Saramā (Sarama), the mother of all Sārameya(s) Sarameya) or dogs, had two sons –Dullolaka and Laloha. From this Dullolaka, eight different types of dogs emerged. They are classified into eight types, according to their colour. Aruṇa (Aruna) was one of the gaṇa(s) (genus) among the sons of Dullolaka. Dogs of a slightly reddish colour belonged to this gaṇa.
