Jindo

Jindo

The Jindo is a sptiz-type dog from Korea. These guys have been helping the Korean people hunt all types of game for thousands of years. Today, Jindos experience a much higher level of popularity in Korea than America.

About this Breed

The Jindo is loyal hunting dog from Korea. It is thought that these guys have been helping hunt animals from rabbits to large deer for several centuries. Jindos were masters of taking down whatever prey and then leading their owner to it. These dogs were brought over to America during the 80’s, but are still relatively unknown here. This is a medium-sized spitz-type dog that shares many similarities to the Shiba Inu and the Akita. Jindos come equipped with a strong prey drive and a desire to roam. They are very protective of their owners and will be very reserved around strangers. The best way to combat this is with early socialization. Jindos require moderate daily exercise; two brisk walks should be sufficient. The breed has a thick double coat that will shed heavily twice a year. Jindos should be groomed daily to help remove their undercoat.
