Frog-dogs were a sentient species that were clever but usually thought to be non-sentient. They use this fact to their advantage, and allow prosperous masters to keep them as pets so they have a constant supply of food and shelter. These ugly, little beast are often ignored, and can therefore sneak unnoticed into palaces or ships and complete secretive tasks. The Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure kept the frog-dog Buboicullaar as a pet, despite his sentience, and used him to spy on his many courtiers. Frog-dogs like Bubo could pull 119 kilograms, or 262 pounds with his tongue.
