“Carlos” is such a sweet and affectionate dog that he can’t help having admirers. In this photo, Merle Marsman, a great friend of the Bonaire Animal Shelter, gets a nice kiss from Carlos while Shelter staff member, Greta Kooistra, shows him off.
Carlos is about six months old and has already been sterilized. A boy found him in the street with a sore leg. Everyone was very concerned but luckily he was cured. And it turns out he is very smart. He can actually lift the latch on the door to his communal cage! But once the Shelter staff found out they had to tie it closed. But smartness does have its advantages because Carlos can catch on fast when he’s being trained.
To meet Carlos and the other adoptees stop by the Shelter on the Lagoen Road, open Monday through Saturday, 9– 1 and 3 -5. Tel. 717-4989.
