Ice Cream Shop for Dogs Gets Tails Wagging in CDMX

April 11, 2017

Dogs with a sweet tooth can satisfy their cravings at this Mexico City ice cream shop which serves up frozen treats specially made for animals.

Shop owner Mauricio Montoya says the puppy ice cream, which he created, is safe for humans, but is especially designed for pets and can even aide in their digestive systems.

The ice cream is made of natural yogurt and lactobacilli bacteria which help in digestion, while normal ice cream can cause pain and diarrhea in dogs. He calls the ice cream 'heladog" combing the Spanish word for ice cream, 'helado' with the English word 'dog'.

Dog owners say their furry friends love the treat and the chance to cool down with other neighborhood pooches and animal lovers alike.

Don't worry, ice cream lovers, the Don Paletto ice cream parlour serves tasty treats for humans too.
