Stray Dog Now Becomes The Cutest Little Friar After Adoption

By Stephen M

Wow, it is refreshing to know that we really have some good people out there. While some people are cruel to animals, others accept them into their homes. Let’s forget about foremost and concentrate on the latter because they deserve a commendation.

Some adoption stories are really commendable and shut out to all those doing such an excellent job. Mostly, we do hear of families and single persons adopting stray or rescued animals. However, this dog’s adoption was on a different level.

The Franciscan monastery in Bolivia has recently brought into its friar an adorable dog named Carmelo. In a statement, the Franciscan monastery of Cochabamba, Bolivia, announced the introduction of a new member into the family. Carmelo now has the title, Friar Bigotón, a Spanish word that means mustache.

In an interview with The Dodo, Friar Jorge Fernandez indicated that the new member’s life will all be about playing and running. “Here, all of the brothers love him very much. He is a creature of God”, he added.

Life before joining the monastery

Carmelo was a stray dog before his adoption into the monastery. However, the rescue groups Proyecto Narices Frías, or the Cold Nose Project, found him and took him in for adoption. The monastery hopes that other churches will also adopt stray animals.

In a Facebook post, they indicated that “If only all the churches of our country adopt a dog and care for him like Friar Bigotón, we are sure that the parishioners would follow his example.”

The adorable dog is really enjoying his new home.
