The Korean Jindo, also known as Jindo-gae, is a breed noted for its loyalty, bravery, and intelligence. Native to South Korea, it has a double-coat in solid or mixed colors such as white, brindle, black, yellow, and red. Jindos have a distinct, muscular build, with females usually smaller than males, perfect for agility, hunt, and guard work. They have a keen sense of direction and are natural jumpers and fast runners, requiring vigorous daily exercises. Their cleanliness and easy trainability make the Korean Jindo a favored pet. They are known to form a strong bond with their primary handler, demonstrating exceptional fidelity. However, their independent nature may require a secure fenced area, or they may wander.
