Broccoli Dog is the nickname given to an image of a dog sitting at a table with a plateful of broccoli, in which he takes an understandable disinterest. Oftentimes, this image may be seen with the phrase “Do Not Want,” but it is simply a popular instance of the larger image macro series which started a few months prior. While Broccoli Dog largely became popular through the iteration, it also gave way to a handful of photoshopped variations and other image macros featuring alternate captions.


The origin of the photo is currently unknown and largely undocumented. The earliest instance we have been able to backtrace so far is a YTMND created November 6th, 2005 by user AnimalChin. The odd part is that this YTMND only has 781 views and only 2.17 stars.

The Origin of Broccoli Dog is currently being researched & evaluated!
If you have any detailed information regarding its history and origin, please contact research staff via Email.


The “Do not want” dog is referenced on Fark on January 4th, 2007 in a thread entitled, Who’s the Boss Star posts naked pictures of self on web, Sadly is not Alyssa Milano.

Posting for the “Do Not Want” dog arriving in 3…2…1…

  • On January 29th of 2007, we see a variation of the dog on My[confined]space with a story instead of the short phrase.

This dog whined and whined until I gave him some broccoli and now look, do you see him eating it? Do you see this dog eating broccoli? Does’t look like it to me. Stupid dog.”

  • Variations of the “Do Not Want” dog image macro from February of 2007 can be found on the Something Awful forums in a thread titled Image Thread 2000.
  • In April of 2007, the “Do Not Want” dog is referenced in MentalFloss.
