New Zealand pet of the day
Nox is a 5-year-old Korean jindo. We have had her since she was 8 weeks old.
We got her while living in South Korea. We then moved to China, and she came along.
We have discovered she has a thing for language, and is able to understand English, Korean and Chinese commands.
Nox is really intelligent and often asks for a cup of coffee or an ice cream. Her favorite thing to eat is rawhide wrapped in dried chicken.
Her breed has a high prey drive, so we are forever restraining her from trying to catch birds (she never does, they fly away too quickly).
While out for walks she likes to stop and smell the flowers or paddle in the local pond (most jindos hate water).
Nox as a puppy.
While at home she plays with my husband and me by playing fetch but never actually giving the ball back.
She sleeps either on her back with all four paws in the air or curled into a ball with her nose tucked under her tail.
