Nina is a spectacular dog. Super smart and very gentle, she has a fabulous temperament, with a lot of unique little quirks. For example, when she is really happy to see you, her ears wiggle. She does seem to have a bit of wanderlust, but she would be quite happy as a part of the family. You would just have to be mindful of her tendancy to wander and keep her safe and happy at home with lots of fun walks.
As always, before adopting a dog, research the breed to help ensure that it will meet both your expectations and lifestyle. To get you started, here is some of what you can read on www.DogBreedInfo.com:
The Chow Chow is a well-mannered dog. Quite good with children. Chow Chows who believe they are boss will often be a one-person dog, very loyal to their master, though he may act reserved, even with them. The exact origin of the Chow Chow is unknown, but we do know that it is a very old breed. The oldest known dog fossils, dated back to several million years ago, are very similar in structure to the Chow Chow. Pictures on Chinese pottery which looked like the Chow Chow date back as far back as 206 BC.
