The History of Jindos and Obesity
Originally thought to have originated in the Island of Jindo, the Jindo is now the national dog of South Korea. It has been suggested that the Jindo traces its lineage back to the Mongolian dog during the 13th century invasion of Korea by the Mongolians. The Jindo are revered for their uncanny hunting ability of large game. A pack of Jindos marched in the opening games of the Olympics in South Korea in 1988. A very rare breed in the United States, there are only two registered with one in California and the other in the greater Seattle area. The even tempered Jindo is a pack dog especially adept at locating and hunting large prey.

Overweight/Obese Jindos in Modern Times
No doubt the Jindo survived for centuries on the hunting spoils with occasional table scraps from humans. Able to locate, kill and protect large prey, the Jindo were revered for their loyalty to their owners by leading them to the downed prey. Unsuccessful attempts have been made to use the Jindo as military dogs but given their strict allegiance to one owner this has not proven successful. Today, the Jindo is listed as the 34th National Treasure in South Korea. Legend holds that three Jindos were able to take down a Siberian tiger in the forests of South Korea. Given their prized status, the Jindo need not put out much effort for food. Generous dog food portions are generally waiting for this prized breed. This generosity of food can be detrimental to maintaining a healthy weight given the Jindo's decreased activity level compared to their ancestors.
