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.

Is it possible to train my Jindo to get along with a friend's dog she wasn't raised with?

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.

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.

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.

could you breed a jindo dog with rotweiler?

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 a Jindo in North Va. Anything above 80 he does not want to go out. He slows down. I don't think it would be good for the dog.

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.

Jindo dogs will have a special bond with children if the children are respectable.
