This fish vendor in a Vietnamese market is really dominating his competition.

Mainly because he is a cat named Dog who dresses like an East Coast fish monger.

Dog is a three-year-old orange Scottish Fold who simply sits with his owner Le Quoc Phong and helps sell fish and other produce. People walking by can’t help but stop and take pictures, and in turn, come away with a fresh seafood dinner. 

Le Quoc Phong told Bored Panda that Dog is getting more popular all around the world. He already has lots of girlfriends…

“Dog loves ice cream, traveling and sleeping. He also has a lot of girlfriends and a lot of children in the country.” 

Dog is very photogenic and sits still for photos. He also is comfortable in his outfits, which his owner wants fans to know. He never forces Dog to wear or do anything, as most cat owners can agree it doesn’t work. Le Quoc Phong said:

“My little cat loves taking pictures. He’s also very cooperative when wearing the costumes. Dog feels very cosy [in these costumes] and can walk normally.”

Dog is named so because he pants with his mouth open. Scottish Folds have flat faces and sometimes have trouble breathing. That’s why sometimes we see these cat breeds with their tongues poking out of their little mouths

Here are some photos of Dog doing a great job at the market from his Instagram and Facebook pages, Dog 1501 and Lê Quốc Phong.

He takes his job seriously, but also likes to have fun with it (wink). 

Sometimes he takes naps if he is wearing the right glasses. Don’t tell anyone.

He isn’t squeamish around his product.

And he doesn’t mind the paparazzi.

He’s pretty much the boss.

Dog is always rewarded for his hard work! 

Basically Dog makes us want to buy a ticket to Vietnam ASAP. We would buy pretty much anything from this little salesman!
