Cheko was dumped at a construction site alone at approximately 3 months of age. He was less than 2kg when found without any siblings or parent. At the foster in Taiwan, he was very outgoing and fearless. He enjoys cuddling and attention from people, strangers and children. Cheko also hangs out with 10 cats at the foster and he treats them like playmates his size. That being said, shy cats may not do well with Cheko. Cheko is bouncy and full of energy. Although he can enjoy a good cuddling session at home, he needs regular walks and good stimulation. Cheko lived with two girls at another foster home in Taiwan. When he arrived in Canada, he quickly became the Canadian foster’s child’s best friend! When he first arrived, he was slightly weary of the foster dad but he opened up very quickly! When he is transferred to his current foster, he had no problem with the new foster dad and walked right up to him snuggling to say hi. He is very smart and learns his commands very quickly. He takes some time getting used to the new potting regime although he was already quick consistent in Taiwan. The pottying habit might be from him trying to decompress from the move. Similarly, his chewing was very light in Taiwan, but quite pronounced in Vancouver. He alert barks and would bark along with the other dogs but is easily corrected. Cheko will remain petite in size when fully grown.
