The Pedigree Adoption Drive is taking a light-hearted approach in this hilarious TV commercial. The pet food company is underscoring the point that dogs are indeed much better suited for home life than wild animals.

In the clip, Rusty the rhino becomes overly eager when asked to go for a walk and Bruno the ostrich takes off after the mailman. We also learn the family car becomes quickly overcrowded with a warthog along for a road trip and if it was ever in question, bulls are just no good at Frisbee.
