In an interview with Bored Panda, Le Quoc Phong revealed that Dog loves ice cream, traveling and sleeping.

“He also has a lot of girlfriends and a lot of children in the country,” Le was quoted as saying. “My little cat loves taking pictures. He’s also very cooperative when wearing the costumes.”

When not selling fresh seafood, Dog spends his time relaxing or playing like a regular cat.

According to Le, Dog got his unusual name because he behaves and breathes more like a dog than a cat.

Dog can be seen with his mouth open in many of his photos, which Le posts on his Facebook and the Dog’s own Instagram account.
