7 Rescue Dogs Whose Owners Love Whataburger

At Whataburger, we love all our fans – even the four-legged variety.

That’s why we’re proud to spotlight these seven rescue dogs whose owners love a delicious Whataburger. Turns out “Man’s Best Friend” is the perfect companion for a trip to Whataburger – and the perfect subject for your next Instagram post.


It’s my birthday, so I’ll bark if I want to!

Lucky is a rescue dog who has been adored by his family for the last seven years. He loves chasing squirrels, playing with his brother Theodore and drinking water from his mom’s Whataburger salad bowl.



Talk about Willpower … 

Sawyer originally hails from a ranch in Virginia and now calls Texas home. Seven years later, his humans say Sawyer is obsessed with going for rides in the car. This fluffy four-legged fan loves going with his parents to the Whataburger drive-thru incognito, but still gets rushed by admirers who ask for his pawtograph.



None for me?

Watching her owners eat the last fry is always bittersweet for her, but Bubbles the Pug has been living the high life since she was rescued almost four years ago. She loves long walks on the beach and the feeling of sand between her paws!



This milkshake is PAWsome!

Beating the Texas heat is a year-round sport and Porter has been known to sneak a few licks from a Whataburger milkshake to cool down. Porter was adopted at a shelter event almost two years ago, when he was just nine months old.



Pawsitively irresistible 

Harley David is a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix rescued four years ago from a family who could not care for him anymore. He “loves tennis balls and barking with his humans” but can’t resist trying to sneak in some Whataburger fries. (Don’t worry, his pet parents make sure to have plenty of doggie treats on hand instead!)



Woof! My hero brought home Whataburger!

Rufus is a spunky 11-year-old Catahoula mix his pet mom adopted from a shelter in Austin when he was just a pup. His favorite pastimes include barking at the mailman, taking long naps on the couch and giving “high fives” for treats. His mom says Rufus is “my best bud.”



Oh, how I wish those fries were mine!

Some dogs dream of chasing rabbits, but Theodore Patton (his buddies call him Theo) dreams of taking a car ride to Whataburger. This handsome Shih Tzu had a ruff life before his pet parents adopted him, but now he’s enjoying his loving family who says: “Everyday we are reminded just how lucky we are. He’s the best dog we could have asked for.”
