At three-years-old, New York City-based pooch, Sprout, has already made a name for himself, thanks to his incredibly cute pout. Sporting various costumes and outfits (as most Insta-dogs do), the Brussel Griffon has amassed more than 145k fans on Instagram. “Just trying to make it in the hustle and Brussel of NYC,” reads his witty (as in dad-humor witty) tagline.
With his name hinting at the vegetable, his nicknames include Sproutie, Sproutito, Bandito, Puppito, Puppers, Sweet Potato and, when he’s feeling especially cheeky, Sir Sproutie Von Brusselington. “I am a smooth-coated Brussels Griffon, which is a type of dog, not a woodland critter, gremlin, ewok or other mythical creature,” reads his website.
But worry not, though he looks pouty, this pooch enjoys living the high-life. According to his owner, Sprout’s hobbies include sidewalk cafes, rooftop parties, Central Park, and sleeping on the subway. “On occasion, I engage in dog-like behavior, namely, playing fetch, barking incessantly at toys I have intentionally dropped off the couch, and zooming around the living room for no apparent reason,” says his website.
