So you’re looking to adopt an Jindo, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The Korea Jindo Dog is a well-proportioned, medium-sized dog used for hunting and guarding. With erect ears and a rolled or sickle-shaped tail, it should be a vivid expression of agility, strength, alertness and dignity.The Jindo has a very strong instinct for hunting and is bold, brave, alert and careful, not tempted easily and impetuous. But most of all he is extremely faithful to his master. On the whole he is not fond of other animals, especially males. He also has a good sense of direction. A one-man dog, he readily accepts a new master, but never forgets his attachment towards the former master who raised him from puppyhood. He keeps himself clean and eats sparingly.
