Adopted by Catherine & Ken and their 3 kids Andrew, Courtney & Kimberly - Mississauga, Ontario - Oct 21, 2012
"Chesmak" was one of four female puppies who were brought to the shelter early summer 2011. They were only a month old. The staff was told that their mother was killed but how much of that was true, it’s unclear. Either way, since they were very little and the shelter wasn’t really a proper place for them, Zarrin family accepted the responsibility of caring for them. Cheshmak, along with her sisters, spent a few months there and after they were a bit bigger and had their shots they were transferred to the shelter. It didn’t take long before they were on the adoption list. Chesmak came to Torento on the first of September, 2012 and after a few months of living with a foster family, she found her permanent family and lives happily with them now.
Cheshmak is settling into our home in Toronto. She has a huge backyard, complete with her own fenced in ravine and forest to play in and to explore. She is learning to play and loves to play ball. We will probably find the woods full of tennis balls in the spring as she buries them or hides them in the snow – and she loves the snow!! Cheshmak is also very playful in the house and enjoys a short playtime and cuddle on the bed in the morning and at night.
She is making friends with the neighbours, both canine and human and eagerly goes to visit them for treats. She is still a bit timid when she leaves her own property but is working hard, with lots of help from all her new human family members, to understand that the world doesn’t have to be scary. She even goes on the paper rounds with the young human child in the family and is regularly going to doggie camp so she gets to meet new people and dogs.
Cheshmak met up with her sisters Mahtab and Shabtab when they arrived from Iran a few weeks ago. She was so excited showing them around her new home and property – the three of them played happily together.
Cheshmak really is a treasure and an added blessing to our family.
