Stating that there is a big change in students and parents, classroom teacher Mustafa Onlen said;
“Our head of the PTA immediately sewed an apron and brought it to our school. We dressed the dog, and believe me, even the parents changed. Our parents saw the dog and did not want to go to school. Our parents took a photo with the dog, played with it and loved it. They also realized that the dog was actually a life. This made us incredibly happy. Our children draw house, mom and dad in painting lessons. As hazelnut are in the classroom, certain children necessarily draw a dog in a part of the picture. The children named the dog. Children take care of everything”
Hazelnut, who does not leave after the students, is very happy in his new life. Students said that they love “Hazelnut” very much and that they feed it with their own hands.
