Today we introduce Brambo the Rambo; a dog who absolutely lives up to its name. I'm quite unsure of as to how far he's connected to the bloodline of wolves, but like his owner points out he does have the touch and look of a werewolf. Brambo is extremely protective of the house he belongs to but is unable to differentiate from a regular to irregular visitor! He does seem to have his mood swings and to get into his good books it's advisable to take a gift as he'd welcome you with open arms. Oops! I mean paws!
Name : Brambo
Breed : Mixed Breed (Street Pooch)
Age : 5
Owner : Thevuni Amaradasa
What's the story behind the name you've given him?
The name Brambo sounds very scary and he can be a really scary dog when want to be! He also kind of looks like a werewolf so we named him Brambo!
What are meal times and bath times like?
Three meals a day - for breakfast he is given milk and bread. He is not a fan of Pedigree and loves anything made of flour.
Lunch - rice specially made for him (almost like biriyani with chicken). Brambo loves chicken and doesn't eat without meat.
Dinner - Same as lunch.
Does he do anything out of the ordinary which fascinates you?
Yes he is very extraordinary! He never barks at the drivers even if we get a new driver but he barks at some of my close relatives every time he sees them. However, he never barks when someone brings food but he strangely doesn't let anyone take anything from my house. But welcomes you when you bring something in.
What is his most favourite fun time activity?
He has a great ear. Whenever I play the piano or when the bread van goes near my house or the door to door vendors travel about shouting out loud, he would also join in by howling according to the tune!
What is the naughtiest thing he has done?
Naughtiest would be biting my grandma and chewing all the tissues and socks!
How did you find him?
I found him at my aunts place.
How does he react when you return home?
He wants to hug us immediately whenever we come home. So he stands on his hind legs and hugs us!
What's the best thing about him?
He won't let anyone come near my house and he makes us happy.
What was the most unforgettable moment that you shared with him?
Well everything is almost unforgettable. He's very attached to us so he gets annoyed whenever someone touches me roughly, which is probably something I won't forget.
