First of all, the cat’s name is Dog, or Chó, given to him because his owner thinks he has more of a dog-like personality, in particular, his tendency to wag his tongue back and forth and breathe like one. Le Quoc Phong works at a local market, and his pet is an employee. The hilarious pair sell fish in Hai Phong City and Dog attracts a lot of attention with his elaborate outfits.

He is a 3 year old Scottish Fold who, according to his owner, really enjoys being around customers and doesn’t mind wearing the costumes. Dog the cat has earned quite the well-deserved following made up of thousands of fans across the world. His fascinating life and incredible fashion sense is featured on multiple fan pages. And as much as the people at the market love him, he’s just as popular with other pets. Apparently, he has a sizable social group in his hometown.

Phong purchased him for a couple hundred dollars and has probably spent way more than that on all of his outfits. But he’s a smart business man. He makes his money back by selling the previously worn costumes. Dog’s pictures have gone viral online and Phong says he wants to make his cat famous so he can use the attention to promote Vietnam so people can learn more about the country.
