Mutts Canine Cantina Names First “Puptern” Found Through Viral Campaign

The first-ever ‘Puptern’, the job opportunity that went globally-viral overnight, was selected from more than 2,300 submissions by the team at MUTTS Canine Cantina. Jadyn Wakamatsu, a 20-year-old Dallas resident who attends Dallas Baptist University was the “lucky dog” chosen for the dream job making $100 an hour to hang out with the pups at MUTTS.

The Texas-based hybrid restaurant/bar and dog park launched the Puptern search in early November. Wakamatsu’s Instagram submission, featuring a gallery of eight photos, and beginning with an image of a Golden Retriever’s paw on her hand, immediately stood out to the MUTTS team. Additionally, several of her friends backed up her submission with comments on the post including, “The Perfect Candidate,” and “You won’t find anyone better,” cementing her place on the short list.

Wakamatsu’s responsibilities will include greeting MUTTS members and their four-legged friends, monitoring the small and large dog parks to engage with pups who want to play a game of fetch or frisbie, and being available for puppy cuddles.
