After a stray dog stole a unicorn toy from a store five times, animal control bought it for him

Animal control officers with the Duplin County Animal Control in North Carolina found Sisu, a one-year-old stray dog, and bought him the toy after a local Dollar General called them.

"This is what happens when you break into the dollar general consistently to steal the purple unicorn that you layed claim to but then get animal control called to lock you up for your B & E and larceny but the officer purchases your item for you and brings it in with you," the Duplin County Animal Control wrote in an adoption Facebook post for Sisu.

The department says Sisu was quickly adopted a day after he went viral for his criminal behavior.
