In the present communication literatures pertaining to the coat color of Jindo dogs, the natural monument of Korea, have been reviewed. It was reported that there were seven different coat colors in Jindo dogs. They are yellow, white, red, black, tiger-like, grey, and spotted. The yellow and red dogs have typical color markings called "Yibaik", and black dogs have yellow or white color markings called "Nenoonbagi". All Jindo dogs, which have 7 different coat colors with typical color markings, could be found nowadays. The pictures of those Jindo dogs were taken and presented in this communication. It was felt that the coat colors of Jindo dogs should not be limited to yellow and white. And Jindo dogs should be judged not by their coat color but by their noble characteristics.
Key Words: coat color, Jindo dogs, literatures, 7 different colors
