Korean Jindo
History:

Country/Date of Origin: Korea/1800s

A medium sized member of the Spitz family of dogs that is spread across Asia and northern Europe. The Jindo was isolated on the Korean island of the same name for centuries where it was used as a guard animal and a hunter. In a pack, the Jindos tracked and attacked big game such as deer. They also had the speed and agility to catch small game alone. In their homeland they are sometimes used to course hares. The breed appeared in the West first in France and has since made its way to the United States.

Tasty Tidbits:
  • This is a very rare breed and a puppy will be difficult to find; expect to pay a high price for this "fad dog" of the moment
