Stray Dog Joins a Monastery

This Adorable Stray Dog Is a Monastery's Friar

A monastery in Bolivia has a new adorable friar: a stray dog who goes by Friar Bigotón. The schnauzer dog, originally a stray, was recently adopted by a Franciscan monastery in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Friar Bigotón and his story went viral after photos of him dressed in Franciscan clothing were posted to Facebook.

The dog, named Friar Carmelo and also goes by the nickname Friar Bigotón (mustache in English), is seen in various photos running around the monastery, drinking water — all while dressed as a friar. The Facebook album, was posted by Kasper Mariusz Kaproń Ofm, on February 26. It's clear that people love the dog a lot, considering the album has more than 2,000 reactions.

Friar Jorge Fernandez told the Dodo that Carmelo loves playing and running — and that they're big fans of him. "Here, all of the brothers love him very much. He is a creature of God."

It's thanks to local adoption agency, Proyecto Narices Frias, that Carmelo found a new home. We're so glad he did — he looks like he's having the time of his life.
