Jindos often display intense loyalty to their owners and families. They are an active breed that thrives in a stable environment, filled with positive reinforcement and enriching activities. These unique qualities make them very appealing to dog lovers who like the novelty of owning a rare breed, but may not have the experience required in handling the challenges of raising a primitive dog. This has resulted in many Jindos being abandoned or surrendered to local animal shelters, where they are often misidentified and overlooked. Despite being a National treasure in their homeland of Korea, they remain relatively unknown in the States.
Please take a moment to learn about animals in need in Korea. There are many fine Jindos/Jindo mixes available for adoption, who need a loving forever home. If you are interested in international adoption, please take a moment to learn about the dogs of Asan shelter.
