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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Annual cost of owning a Jindo puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Jindos true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

How much is a white purebred Jindo? Or a white Jindo in general?

1 Comment


The all white Jindo is hard to come by and so if a breeder decides to sell one, most likely the puppy will cost more than the more average colorations. I would suspect that a puppy would cost between $2500.00 - $3250.00.

I have a 9 week Jindo puppy. Which is the best food for them??

1 Comment


Your puppy should be eating the puppy food your breeder was feeding them before he/she left. However, if you've run out of that food or wish to switch your puppy over; then you can change their food. Your puppy should be on a Grain-Free puppy or all-life-stages food. Going to your local pet store and asking them about what grain-free food they offer is best. Your pup should be on a puppy food until he/she is 1 year old and then can be put onto an adult grain-free or all-life-stages food.

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.

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 Jingo breed. Is it even possible to predict anything about the dog's personality?

1 Comment


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.

Anonymous asked:
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.


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.
