Ingenious Dog Sees People Buying Food With Money So He Uses Leaves As Money To Get Food Too

Past few years, a cute black dog named Negro has been living in the campus of Colombia’s Diversified Technical Education Institute of Monterrey Casanare. He keeps his eye over the students as a guardian who is going for their studies.

The school’s faculty looks after him and provides food, water and shelter to pass the night. But apparently, the dog has decided to do the things that are beyond to him.

Negro used to observe the kids buying things on their breaks and sometimes even the students used to buy him the cookies that were sold there. That was the time when the dog firstly learned about commerce and he decided to try it out all by himself.

Teacher Angela Garcia Bernal said, “He would go to the store and watch the children give money and receive something in exchange. Then one day, spontaneous, he appeared with a leaf in his mouth, wagging his tail and letting it be known that he wanted a cookie.”

Negro invented his own currency and Surprisingly! It was accepted. The dog by then had realized that money would literally grow on the trees.

“He comes for cookies every day,” Gladys Barreto, a longtime store attendant, said. “He always pays with a leaf. It is his daily purchase.”

Now the dog has been doing the same thing for years now and at the same time staffs has been taking care of him by letting him have only those foods which are safe for dogs.

The staffs also limit his purchase to just a couple a day but still, it’s a remarkable thing to behold. “When you first see it, you almost want to cry,” Bernal said. “He’s found a way to make himself understood. He’s very intelligent.”
