The newest member of St. Francis Monastery in Cochabamba, Bolivia, is furry and has four legs.
His name is Friar Carmelo, but they've nicknamed him Friar Bigotón (Spanish for mustache).
The friars found the stray schnauzer on the streets and decided to adopt him as one of their own, even going so far as to outfit the pup with his own Franciscan habit.
"Sometimes we brothers have a laugh among ourselves and there is a brother here that is also called Carmelo, who has a moustache, so that was sort of the inspiration [behind his name]," one of the friars told local television channel ATB.
