Saramā is the name of a female dog belonging to Indra and the other devas in early Hinduism's Vedic mythology.

Saramā is mentioned in Rigveda 10.14.10 as the mother of the four-eyed brindled dogs of Yama.

Saramā is said to have gone in search of cattle, stolen and hidden in the Vala by an evil people called Paṇis, as described in Rigveda 10.108.
