The Korean Jindo is a medium-sized, well-built dog. This is a dog belonging to the Spitz phenotype, with a triangular head, pointed ears, straight hair of medium length. The body is either square or slightly longer than the height. The tail is thick and can be curled loosely over the back or carried over the back in a crescent shape. The differences between females and males are easily noticeable. Usually, males are larger in size with heavier heads, while bitches have fox-like heads. The appearance of the Korean Jindo gives an idea of an intelligent, strong, and agile dog.
The squared-off Jindo has a relatively deep but not wide chest. At its deepest point, the chest reaches, or is higher in the immediate vicinity, the level of the elbows. The sternum is well developed and the ribs are spring-loaded. The back is strong and straight, and the loin is well muscled, thinner, tighter, and sharper than the rib cage. The beast is tucked up and well defined.
