About Korean Mastiff Breed


Originally from South Korea, this dog breed is famous for its layers and folds in the skin and adorable eyes. The native name of the breed is Mee Kyun Dosa. They grow quite big and an adult Korean Mastiff weighs around 70 kg.

Temperament: They are known to be quite friendly, easy going, intelligent and loyal. They like to be around humans and can adapt to both city and country environments. They are termed as a lazy dog breed and love to sit beside their humans. However, they are classified as a working class dog breed.

Life expectancy: 8-12 years

Grooming: As they have short skin, they don’t shed much. However, weekly brushing of the coat is recommended along with weekly cleaning of their skin (especially between folds). A monthly bath routine is recommended for this breed.

Health problems: Cherry eye is a common problem in this breed. They are prone to bloating, so only small meals should be fed to them 2-3 times a day. They are also prone to hip dysplasia and genetic eye condition like Entropia.
