Korean Jindo Dog

Jindos move in a rather distinctive way. Trotting, they carry their head high, but as they pick up speed the head is carried fairly low, almost at the height of the shoulders.

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.
