Korean Jindo

General Description

The Jindo developed as a breed on an island off the coast of South Korea. Medium-sized and natural in appearance, they are valued as independent hunters, discerning guardians, and loyal companions. The Jindo Dog is a well-proportioned, medium-sized dog used for hunting and guarding.

General Health

Jindos are prone to a common condition called hypothyroidism, in which the body doesn't make enough thyroid hormone. Signs can include dry skin and coat, hair loss, susceptibility to other skin diseases, weight gain, fearfulness, aggression, or other behavioral changes.

Character and Temperament

Intelligent, loyal, faithful, bold, active and brave


Jindo dogs are well adapted to domestic life. They are happy going on 10-30 minute walks multiple times a day and enjoy a regular exercise schedule. This makes them excellent apartment dogs, as long as they get outside to expand and explore their territory daily.


The Korean Jindo originated on a small island off the coast of South Korea called Jindo, from which the breed takes its name. The Korean Jindo was known on this island for thousands of years where it lived amongst humans but was allowed to roam freely. They hunted alongside their owners and guarded their homes.
