DUPLIN COUNTY, N.C.— After he repeatedly tried to steal the same stuffed unicorn toy from a store, a stray dog was taken to a North Carolina animal shelter on March 21.

The officer that was called in to transport the pup decided to purchase the toy and send it with him.

A local photographer named Shannon Johnstone did a photoshoot for the dog, whose name is Sisu, and his new best friend as the one-year-old pup awaits a pending adoption.

Johnstone said that Sisu had broken into a local Dollar General Store five times to steal the exact same purple unicorn.

In their post on Facebook, the shelter described Sisu as “very vocal” and very obedient with people. Also, they said he loves unicorns from Dollar General.

The shelter's post gathered hundreds of likes, comments and shares.

Sisu now has both an adopter and a rescue, according to Duplin County Animal Services, but other dogs are currently available for adoption at the shelter.
