Jeju Dogs have high academic value due to their unique characteristics and conditions, but they have received little attention in the research field. This paper attempts to secure fundamental data to clarify the general characteristics of Jeju Dogs. For this purpose, an inspection of the basic body shape was performed to establish the shape and breed standards. Jeju Dogs were also exposed to 12 behavior tests to check their distinct character categories and an objective ethogram was built on each of the character categories to conduct a behavior analysis. The body shape of 34 clinically healthy Jeju Dogs aged 18 months or older was inspected using ten divided parts. For the behavior analysis, 10 Jeju Dogs were examined. A variety of behavioral variables were recorded based on 12 behavior tests that were categorized into four characters: sociality, aggressiveness, anxiety and submissiveness. The results of the body shape inspection indicated that most of the male dogs` parts had larger measured values than the female dogs` parts. The behavior analysis results revealed that the Jeju Dog displays excellent qualities such as submissiveness, reliability and fidelity and, hence, it is believed that this breed of dog is very appropriate for most duties and has the potential to be a household dog or working dog.
