Overview
Originating in Southwest Korea several centuries ago, the Jindo were bred to hunt badgers, rabbits, deer, and wild boar. This breed is protected by Korean law as a National monument, and is the most favored and popular breed in Korea. The Jindo breed did not appear in the United States until the 1980's and is considered to be uncommon in North America, since the Korean government restricts their exportation.
Character
The Jindo breed is a Spitz-type dog of medium size. This breed is independent, cautious, and is an ideal hunter. Jindo's are extremely courageous, active, and intelligent. The Jindo is renowned for their homing instinct. This breed has a very high prey drive.
Temperament
Jindo's are not recommended for an inexperienced dog owner as their independent nature and strong will can make them difficult to handle. The Jindo possesses strong and unwavering loyalty to their owner and family and is deeply devoted. For this reason they do not do well at being re-homed. They are affectionate, friendly, and gentle. They make excellent watchdogs and will fight to the death to protect their family and home. The Jindo breed does best in a home with older considerate children and other dogs it has been raised with. Due to their naturally high prey drive, non-canine pets in the home are not recommended. This breed thrives on living indoors with the family and will become destructive if bored or lonely.
Care
The Jindo breed requires regular brushing of the coat as it will minimize loose hair. During the heavy, twice a year shedding season, daily brushing is an absolute must. Frequent warm baths during this time help with the shedding process. The Jindo has no health issues due to limited intervention of human breeding.
Coat
The Jindo is a double coat breed. The outer coat is straight, harsh, and more profuse on the neck and chest. The undercoat is dense and soft, but is sufficient to support the outercoat. The Jindo sheds heavily twice a year.
Training
Extremely obedient and fastidious, the Jindo breed is capable of housebreaking themselves. Early socialization and obedience training must be done with respect, firmness, fairness, and consistency. Proper training by the owner is absolutely crucial and is the difference between life and death.
Activity
The Jindo is not recommended for apartment dwelling. They require a highly secured fenced yard to release their energy. This breed thrives on playing with family, but tug-of-war play is highly cautioned against. The Jindo will benefit from daily walks provided they are securely leashed and muzzled if in a public setting.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Jindo puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Where in the US can we find a breeder? I would like to adopt one since it's been years since I've had a Jindo. I was born and raised in Korea. It's been 9 years since I left. Please, help.

The AKC website or the Jindo Club of America will be your best place to find a breeder. If you can not find one, then you may have to import from Korea or Japan.

We are considering adopting a dog that is mixed breed; jingo/labrador retriever/German Shepher/Bosto We are considering adopting a dog that is mixed breed; jingo/labrador retriever/German Shepherd/Boston Terrier. With such a broad lineage, is it even possible to predict anything about the dog's personality?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. That is what is worrisome to a lot of people when they adopt a dog or puppy with several breeds mixed into it. The best thing to do is to do your research on each breed and get in contact with your local positive reinforcement trainer. Enrolling your puppy into puppy classes and when he/she gets older into obedience classes is going to be a major step in developing your puppy's outlook on the world. As well as plenty of social time at the dog park, pet stores and anywhere/everywhere else you can take your pup to socialize them as they grow.

Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer. He/She will be able to help you with this situation. Muzzles restrict your dog's breathing which can be very dangerous.

We could not find a muzzle for our Jindal. We were only going to use it to introduce cats to him. Ours only barks when he wants to chase rabbits or squirrels.

Your dog should have been socialized with many different types of dogs as he/she grew up. But remember, like people, all dogs don't get along with every other dog. Understand that they may just not get along. But in general, have the interactions on leash to allow the dogs to get to know each other before allowing the off leash.

It really depends on the Jindo. Some will not socialize well. Others are fine. Take your Jindo on long walks with the other dog and get your Jindo used to the other dog. Do not just let them go in your home or your friends home. Go someplace outdoors where the other dog will not be the main focus of attention and let them get to know each other as friends.

Depends on what area you're in. In the US, if you're on the East Coast, prices for jindo's typically range from $200 to $500 (some may be lower or higher). Over on the West Coast (especially LA), the puppies can be as much as $1500.

FREE!(pay for shots and neuter) If you check animal shelters - online is easy. I never get puppies anymore, sure i love them but i have had great luck on adopting adult dogs under 1 year old. I just got my Jindo from the shelter March 4th, 2012 and she is obviously a purebred. Great dogs are left at shelters for all sorts of reasons. In my case her owner went back home to Korea and had to leave her behind. Just be aware, young adult Jindos are not super affectionate when they first meet a stranger. They are friendly but reserved, so don't let that put you off when you go looking for an older Jindo. Mine took a day of being in my home to start feeling at ease and get playful.

A Jindo will normally establish their family and home by 6 months of age. It is very difficult to re-home them after this age. However, it can be done...it just takes a lot of time and patience. Even after the adult Jindo adjusts to its new family and home, however, they might still go crazy with happiness if they ever see their first owner again.

I just got my Jindo from the animal shelter yesterday, she is 11 months and was at the shelter for 1 month. She appears to be purebred. I was worried that she would be difficult to win her trust, after reading about how loyal Jindos are to their first owner. However only one day later she is settling in my home and is opening up. I do have a very playful border collie. It took about 12 hours before the Jindo would play. Now just 24 hours after getting her she and my collie are good play buddies and the Jindo is responding to my call and is getting more affectionate. I'm pretty sure, seeing how fast she is settling in, that she will be bonding with me over the next few weeks. The 30 days in the kennel made it possible her to open up now that she is in a stable home and out of the kennel, she is very happy having freedom and a yard to play and wrestle with my collie.

I recommend you should not. There are a few jindo breeds left. Although, they can't stop you from breeding them from another country, it is likely that the breed your trying to create wouldn't work. You need to have a professional breeding knowledge: start with getting a license. You should wait until the jindo dogs population grows rapidly fast and then breed them. I warn you though, in a breeders' world, only 5-10 in a million gets accepted. That's not much. Plus, families like purebred dogs because they can identify them easier than a mix. Study before you breed.

Most of the Jindo breeders are Korean, and they are normally in areas with a high Korean population (LA, New York, northern VA). To breed him, you just have to find somebody with a female that you like and contact them. Normally, they'll allow for stud service and take their pick puppy from the litter, although they may settle for money as well. You'll just have to find somebody with a female (not spayed) and see what they say.

I have 3 years old Jindo,and she is just awesome ! She has a great wathdog ability, which if any stranger comes near to our house, she starts to bark and becomes very aggressive. Otherwise, she is very friendly with my family and she can get along with my friends if she sees my friends after several times.

Jindo dogs are extremely loyal to their owners from the day you get one. They will protect you and your family as much as the can they are almost like Hachi. The are stories in Korea about Jindos getting lost from their original owners and take several months trying to find their owners until they do. They are the smartest dog I know and will do ANYTHING FOR YOU!!!

My family brought a Jindo puppy from Atlanta, GA and during the car ride, she constantly threw up. My dog is now three years old, and she hates riding a car. whenever she gets on the car, she starts to drool and pee everywhere. My advise is make sure Jindo to take medication before he gets on any ride.

Depends on the dog. Any airplane travel will stress any dog, and isn't there a quarantine period of like 3 months once you do arrive in another country? That would be bad for any pet..i wouldn't put my dog through that. The temperatures in California are fine for most animals (i doubt you will be schooling in any desert area with high temps). Florida can be quite humid in the summer and could be hard on a thick furred pet. My dog is a car travel champ, loves the car and never gets sick when traveling.

We have a jindo that is nearly one year old. At 7 months he was gently playing with our grandaughter, who is the same age as him. He will let her hold his chew bone, wave it around, etc. He'll gently take a hold of it and tug. Sometimes he wins, sometimes he lets her win. She can take things from his mouth. If she is playing with smaller things and throws them he fetches them and brings them back near her. He is very focused on our family and appears to love everone very much. But he is very watchful and barks at anyone or anydogs outside that do not belong. He is the most thoughful dog we have ever had.

A Korean family in my neighborhood owns three jindos. The dogs live outside and are contained by only an invisible fence. Two other dogs in the neighborhood have been attacked and seriously wounded by the dominant dog in their "pack." The family's daughter was also bitten by this dog. Read the notes on what this dog is bred for and use your intelligence. It is bred to hunt. Please don't get one of these dogs if you have small children around or if you will not be responsible enough to secure them with a physical fence. Frankly, I see no reason to own one of these animals as a family "pet."

I have a jindo named su ha and shes about 6 months old. Though she is tied up shes gets alot of excercise because we have 6 other teens living with us who take her on a walk everytime they go to a nearby store. What I really love about her is, she only barks when she sees strangers, the gate is open. When I bring over a friend, she'll bark at my friend, only if I bring my friend beside me and say to my jindo its okay and I take my jindos hand and let it touch my friend shell stop barking.

I have a Jindo that I got at 2 months old while in South Korea. She absolutely does not bark. I had heard rumours that Jindos can get restless on their own, and may start to bark, so I was real firm on the 'no barking' and it has never been a problem.
