“Brammetje” may have a Dutch name but he’s truly an American bull dog. He’s strong, he’s smart, but he is an extremely mellow fellow.
This handsome guy was seen wandering around Lagun for about three weeks. It was a lucky day for him when a Good Samaritan found him and brought him into the Bonaire Animal Shelter where he was welcomed with love, a visit to the vet for a thorough exam, shots and good nutritious meals. And how he responded: When someone comes into his pen he is so happy and welcoming, and he just wiggles with delight.
Brammetje is a young dog, under a year old. He needs a good, educated-about-dogs, kind of owner. Or maybe a couple, but someone who can give him the time he needs to show his potential. Although he’d probably like to be an “only dog,” he can deal with one other. At the moment the Shelter has a number of big dogs. Many of them have come from the street and as staff member Monique says, “These dogs need a job!” So it a nice opportunity for people who want a good guard dog.
You may meet Brammetje and the other dogs and cats that are up for adoption at the Shelter on the Lagoen Road, open Monday through Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm, 3 to 5 pm. Tel. 717-4989.
