Pronoun used in chez

In the phrase "j'ai pris la petite creature dans mes bras et je l'ai ramenée chez elle"  you use the pronouns la and chez elle meaning it is a feminine dog.  In the beginning of the story you use the pronoun "un chien" meaning a masculine dog.  I am confused with the pronouns used to describe the dog.

Thank you,

In the sentence noted, the noun 'creature' is relevant for choice of article, not whether the creature itself is male/female. Hence 'la petite créature' and also 'chez elle', subsequently.
