"nagy" seems to be missing in the description of the dog in the Hungarian version.

It is missing indeed.

How about "A szakácsnak egy fekete kutyája van." (with or without "egy")? I know the emphasis changes. The new/emphasized information in my example would be the new girlfriend and/or the newness of the girlfriend, right?

You mean a dog, right? A bitch it may be, but still, a dog. :)
Otherwise, yes, the emphasis would be a bit more on what it is that the cook has.

Oops! My bad. I think I'd just answered a question before this one with "baratnő" in it!
