    진돗개를 예전에 키워 봤는데 깔끔하고 주인에게 무한 충성하는건 좋은데 사회화 훈련을 좀 많이 시켜줘야 할 견종같아요 좀 야생적인 느낌이 강했습니다. 순한녀석인줄 알고 있었는데 산책시키다가 도약하는 비둘기를 점프해서 물고 주변에 좀 개기는 개들이 있으면 가차 없이 이빨을 드러내서… 깜놀한적이 있었거든요.

    Very similar to Akitas, although much slighter, maybe closer to a Shiba Inu or some of the smaller Nordic breeds…..

    I have a question, why can't you let dogs walk in front of you? How can they enjoy a walk if their always beside you though? I get showing them that your the leader but how can they enjoy a walk when they can't sniff or do their business?

    The JIndo breed is protected by the law to keep the lineage. JIndo is a island with a bridge over the sea. The other dog cannot be going in and out. Some people eat the jindo? Maybe. But jindo is so expensive. Korea has a food custom to eat dogs. It's true. Normally there is the eatable breeds.

    One that is not true: Korean Government does NOT protect this breed. Jindo Dog is a Natural Monument of my country, but most of Jindo dogs are eaten by the dog eaters in my country. The majority of dog farms have Jindo dogs because many people abandon Jindo dogs. The Jindo dogs in shelters also are not protected. They are euthanized, like the other dogs, after 7 days of being taken to the shelter.
