Sure, most dogs can learn to sit, roll over, but Latino dogs live a different way of life. Only Latino dogs shake their tails on queue to Celia Cruz’s music and stop at the smell of fresh fruta con chile. What else do they do? Here are other signs your canine is Latino…

Milk-Bones are basic. A Latino dog only takes pepinos as treats. More Tajín, please!

He’s bilingual and learns most of it from their abuelitos.

And proudly wear their traditional patterns.

The poncho doesn’t make the man; the man makes the poncho.
