About the Korean Jindo Dog

Korean Jindo Dogs have a highly developed hunting instinct and an innate sense of direction. Bold, brave, alert, attentive and fiery, they are not easily tempted. With erect ears and a rolled or sickle-shaped tail it should be a vivid expression of agility, strength, alertness and dignity.

Generally, they don’t much like other animals, especially the males, but they are exceptionally loyal to their human companion. They have a single master, and although they have little problem accepting a new one they will never forget their attachment to the first they had as a puppy.
