Briland, the Miniature Pinscher, lives the good life in Harbour Island, Bahamas. His favorite person and personal photographer, Paola Wells, took these photos last January. Luckily, Hurricane Dorian did not devastate Harbour Island. And the Harbour Island community is welcoming evacuees from areas that were so tragically affected by the hurricane. Paola has been helping take photos for IDEA Relief, a nonprofit organization that supported the evacuees just days after the storm. IDEA Relief is still on the ground helping with the rescue, recovery, and rebuilding.
From Paola: “This is Briland, my handsome miniature pinscher! Like me, he lives on an island, and he loves to spend his day running on the beach! He had a happy life and came from a nice family. Usually, I say that I did not rescue him, for sure he rescued me. Every day makes me happy with all his love and loyalty!
Briland is an island dog; he does a lot of the activities I do in my spare time and as a photographer!
He likes to chase the horses and run with them, but they do not like him so much! So all the time we met them on the beach, Marty, the horseback riding man, gives Briland a ride. When Briland is on the top of the horses, he is quiet as he feels in charge, I think!
I would love to mention Briland Animal Rescue, an organisation based on our island with whom I volunteer that are collecting dogs and cats coming from Abaco and Freeport.”
Briland Animal Rescue has an Amazon Wishlist. Items purchased from their Amazon list will go directly to people and animals affected by Hurricane Dorian. You can also follow Briland Animal Rescue on Instagram.
