Sandy is the best dog I have ever owned. She is a Chow Chow-Miniature Poodle mix with a very sweet temperament. I had her DNA analyzed, Chow Chow was the predominant breed with Miniature Poodle as the second. She is incredibly smart which I believe comes from her Poodle genes. Her coat color and a few other physical features seem to come from the Chow Chow genes, I had always guessed she had some Chow Chow in her. I was pleasantly surprised to find that she had Poodle genes too as the breed is very smart.
