Stray Dog Who Kept Stealing a Stuffed Unicorn Finds New Home With His Beloved Toy

A stray dog in North Carolina kept stealing the same purple unicorn stuffed animal from a Dollar General store.  He stole it FIVE different times.

This is what happens when you break into the dollar general consistently to steal the purple unicorn that you layed…

When animal control picked him up, they took him to a local animal shelter but not before buying the unicorn for him.  A shelter volunteer and photographer, Mary Shannon Johnstone, shared on her Facebook page:

Sisu. The dog who broke into a Dollar General Store 5 times to steal the same purple unicorn—the same exact one. Not others like it near by, but that one in particular. Animal control was called, and the officer, Officer Lane, bought the toy for him before she brought the dog to the Duplin County Animal Shelter. I got to talk to Officer Lane. She purchased the unicorn with her own money, and said, “well, it is what he wanted.”
