Sup guys, while my friend has a jindogae[a korean intelligent dog] who is 6 months old and wants to give it to me for free! Im not sure because I hear these dogs are super loyal and would run away and do bad things to be with their REAL owner. Im wondering if 6 months is young enough so that i can train it and it will be attached to ME. or im wondering if 6 months is to old and it will still be bonded with its old master. PLEASE respond A.S.A.P .. a dogs life is on the line!!

Jindos are rather primitive dogs with very strong prey drive, and they do get very attached to their owners.

Since this dog's life is on the line, and you want to take it, you may as well give a try! At 6 months old, I'm sure this dog can bond to you. Do you have the time to spend training, exercising and bonding with this puppy?

Go to Google and type in "Jindo dogs" and you'll get a ton of information. People seem to either love or hate these dogs. They're different, that's for sure! You may be one of the people to love them!:)

Jindos can successfully be rescued/adopted out but it does take a little more work than with a dog like a golden. The only thing I STRONGLY urge you to do before you commit to adopting this dog is to be sure that you are aware of all of the pros and cons of Jindos (we don't want to see this poor soul in rescue again). Remember, while loyal, they tend not to be good with other dogs, have a high prey drive and are generally not good off leash. They are a lot of work but, to those that love them, well worth it! :p

Good luck!!
