The Korean Jindo is one of the few Korean breeds that is still relatively rare in the United States. That said, they are beautiful dogs that do attract attention to those who meet them. They were originally used as hunting dogs and still maintain a lot of the prey drive necessary for the work. Because of this, they do not fare well around other small animals, dogs included. Jindos are very independent and are not the social butterflies many owners wish their dogs to be.

#14 – Rhodesian Ridgeback

The Rhodesian Ridgeback is a large, powerful hunting dog from Africa. Although the breed is affectionate and loyal to its family, it is aloof and sometimes wary of strangers. Originally used as guard dogs and hunting dogs, they maintain the tenacity needed to tackle large game such as lions and wild pigs.
