Bolivian Monastery Adopts A Stray Dog And Makes Him An Honorary Monk


Friar Moustache, or Firar Bigoton, was a stray dog until he became a part of the St Francis Monastery in Cochabamba, Bolivia. The monastery was named after a saint who loved animals a lot. Hence, monks of this monastery naturally have an affinity towards animals. They decided to give this stray dog a fresh lease of life by adopting it. He is now happy and enjoys life to the maximum extent possible by playing and running around all day, as expressed by Jorge Fernandez. Also, the monks at the monastery are all in awe of the dog and give him a lot of love.

Friar Moustache also likes being a monk, as he was seen attending all the duties as attended by a monk. The photos of this dog were posted online by Kasper Mariusz Kapron.

He only expressed that it would be much better if all the churches present in the country would stick to something like this, as it would result in a lot of animals being rescued.
