But though Botella might have started off without a buddy on the planet, things didn’t remain that way for long.
Mall-goer Silvana Katalina initially encountered Botella last year after stopping to shop. She was instantly struck by two points– just how loving the pup is, and just how obsessed he is with toys.
” He never parts from his little ball,” Katalina Said. “He is very tender and likes to be pet.” However it’s what Boletta finishes with the ball that’s most impressive of all.
Botella invented a game all his own – cleverly employing an escalator to convince strangers to play games of fetch.
Botella, plainly, is an expert at making buddies. And it reveals. Not only do customers love interacting with him, team and security at the mall ensure that he stays happy and healthy.
” He is fed and looked after,” Fernanda Pérez, an animal fan who lives near the mall, told The Dodo. “He looks extremely pleased.”
( Word is, employees at the mall are even known to look the other way when Botella helps himself to replacement balls at stores inside the mall.).
Botella might be a stray canine with, maybe, a unfortunate and lonely past. But thanks to the open hearts of buddies and strangers at the mall that so readily embrace him, his life is not without love.
Actually, you could say, they’re ensuring he enjoys.
