Our hearts are officially melting. A Toronto-based rescue organization called Peanut Mother Rescue (PMR) is still looking for a home for an adorable puppy named Wink, who was brought to the city from Jordan earlier this month. PMR is hoping to find foster care for Wink, but while she is so cute, not enough people apply to bring her home.
PMR founder Nisa Gunduz told Curiocity that she is “surprised at the lack of applications” that have been received for Wink, but that this is currently “a sign of the times” for animal rescue organizations.
Photos of the happy looking puppy attracted a lot of attention on their Facebook page, but didn’t result in many applications. According to Gunduz, the number of people interested in adopting or caring for a dog has decreased as life slowly returns to normal.

“So many people adopted during COVID and more dogs than ever are being returned to shelters abroad, so rescues are overflowing with dogs that are far fewer in need of adoption,” said Gunduz.
“Wink has only been up for adoption three days ago, but during the pandemic, a post like hers would have generated 30-40 applications during that time.”
Gunduz and her partners Al-Rahmeh for animals often rescue dogs from Jordan, where many of them suffer horrific mistreatment. Moving them to Canada is an expensive process, and the only way we can keep saving dogs like Wink is by getting more people ready to adopt them.
Wink is described as a typical “happy, playful, kind, and loving” puppy who weighs approximately 55 pounds when fully grown. Photos shared by PMR show her running and staring sweetly at the camera. PMR also shared a video of her rescue, showing how far she has come since she was found.
Hopefully it won’t be long before Wink finds her new family.
