Off the southwest coast of South Korea, there is an island where the Jindo breed was first identified. The name of the breed, Jindo, is derived from the name of the island. The dogs evolved into a natural breed with reputable hunting skills as a result of thousands of years of unrestricted living alongside their owners on the island. Jindos are known as Jindo-kae or Jindo-kyon in their own country. They have been registered with the American Kennel Club’s Foundation Stock Service in the country since 2008.
