I need the help of a brazilian Portuguese speaker for the interpretation of 2 sentences from a small brazilian cartoon "Fabula da Corrupcao". Here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7f3jhRxprY
I can't understand the following sentences from the bigining - "Tirava seu suspeito dum pequeno mercadinho"
and "Joao era todo um cao". What versions of possible interpretations could they have. Thanks!

Hi Jofiel,

I have seen this video. As you said you did not understood beginning sentences. I have mentioned it below. I hope it helps you.

Meaning of "Tirava seu suspeito dum pequeno mercadinho" is "Took his suspect of a small grocery store” and Meaning of "Joao era todo um cao" is "Joao was all a dog"

It's how i translated them but still Joao is the name of the man in the cartoon how can he be also the dog unless it's the dog's name as well?
I translated simply "Joao has a dog" not to create confusion in understanding.
I asked native portuguease speakers from Portugal and they couldn't tell me any idea of meaning of these two sentences. Anyway thank you!

Wrong transcription/understading Mar 3, 2015

Dear Jofiel,

You didn't get it right. The narrator said:

"Tirava seu SUSTENTO de um pequeno mercadinho"

"João era o DONO de um cão"

Regards,

Hi!
that's it, i could not understand the pronunciation correctly, the bad thing is that the native portuguese speakers from Portugal couldn't understand or they were lasy to listen properly) and i couldn't interpret it corectly in the result.
Thank you very much for help!
