The Jindo breed originates from an island located on the southwest coast of South Korea. The name of the breed is derived from the name of the island, Jindo. Dogs have been unrestrained on the island for thousands of years with their owners, so that they can develop into a natural breed with hunting abilities. Jindo was designated as the Republic of Cultural Assets Act No. 53 in 1962. In short, the dog is called Korea Natural Treasure # 53. In its country of origin, Jindos are called Jindo-ke or Jindo-kyon. Cai or Kyon is the Korean word for dog. Internationally, he is the Federation of Synthological International Standard Number 334. In the United States, he has been admitted to the American Kennel Club - Foundation Stock Service since 2008.
