Stray Dog Crashes Wedding and Gets Adopted by Bride and Groom

A wedding in Brazil had a guest that no one expected but who caught everyone’s attention. A stray dog showed up at the ceremony of Douglas Robert and Tamíris Muzini in Brazil. He appeared suddenly at the main entrance of the church and not only watched the entire wedding but was also the first to congratulate the bride and groom.

But that wasn’t even the best part of about this wedding crasher – he so enamoured the bride and groom that they decided to rescue him from the streets and adopted him!

Wedding guests were instantly entertained when the dog – now named Braiá Caramelo de Jesus – showed up on the steps of the Rosário Church. He adorably mingled among them, rolling on his belly.

He quietly watched the entire ceremony from the entranceway and took a short nap.

He then excitedly greeted the newly-married couple as they exited the church. Wedding photographers Yuri and Amanda Merigueti captured the delightful moment on camera.

The bride later revealed that she had spotted the dog when she first arrived at the church. “I was surprised. I thought, ‘Look, there’s a dog inside the church,’” Muzini told The Dodo. “My heart melted.”

Muzini’s heart melted even more when Braiá Caramelo congratulated them as they exited the church. “When he greeted us at the end so, he asked: ‘Take me home. Take me,'” Muzini said.

As the couple left the church, Braiá Caramelo followed after them as they left. Wedding guests and Yuri and Amanda Mergueti shared videos and photos of the dog at the wedding.

Apparently, the dog lived in the area and was a regular presence in the nearby Vila Velha. It was after taking him home, that Muzini and Robert learned he wasn’t without a dark past.

Braiá Caramelo had his paw x-rayed and the vet discovered it was broken and put it in a cast. The vet also noticed a big scar on his belly is probably a mark of something his former owners used to tie him up with. He had a bruise on his muzzle too, maybe from being kicked.

But even with so many reasons to be afraid of people, Braiá Caramelo is a dog with a wonderful heart. And his heart brought him to the right place at the right time.
