We willingly made the eight hour drive from Nebraska to Missouri to pick up our female chow puppy in mid-February. We have had her almost a month and she has been so much fun. Her personality has blossomed! Housebreaking was pretty easy, and she gets along well with our other dog. She is very playful and, true to the chow personality, can be a bit disobedient. But she responds well to appropriate redirection. We are very glad our "Indigo" is the newest member of our family.
