A stray dog was recently adopted by St. Francis Monastery in Cochabamba, Bolivia. It’s rather fitting since St. Francis is the patron saint of animals. Now the pup wears traditional monk garb and is loved dearly by everyone at the monastery.
They named him Friar Bigotón, with the nickname Friar Moustache. It’s pretty difficult to be any cuter than this.
This is Friar Bigotón (Friar Moustache).
He was a stray dog.
The monks at St. Francis Monastery adopted him and gave him a new home.
He fit in right away.
He was given his own habit – the tradition monk robe.
He enjoys running around the monastery.
He attends to his monk duties too.
He’s often caught preaching to the fishes.
The monks hope their act of kindness will inspire others.
It wasn’t long before this little guy embraced the life of living in a monastery. The monks consider him one of them, and he’s more than happy to belong to a loving family.
