Does anyone know at what age the homing imprint takes place? Also, is it possible for an adult jindo to change its imprint, particularly in the situation of being rehomed?

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.
