The animal control officer who moved Sisu from the Dollar country store to the shelter bought the stray dog his unicorn toy before bringing the canine in.
Dogs could also be man’s ally, but apparently, a unicorn — a stuffed purple one at that — may be a dog’s ally.
Animal control officers were called to a North Carolina Dollar country store after a stray dog kept coming into the shop and beelining for the toy aisle.
“He went straight for the unicorn, an equivalent one whenever,” says Joe Newburn, a supervisor at Duplin County Animal Services.
“It was so strange, one among the strangest calls I’ve ever addressed,” Newburn adds.
Workers at the Kenansville store (about 80 miles from Raleigh) told animal control officers that they caught the Lab mix darting into Dollar General whenever a customer exited. whenever the stray dog made it in, he visited grab an equivalent plush purple unicorn toy.
“Finally, that they had to lock the door and called us,” Newburn tells PEOPLE about how animal control became involved during this playful pooch’s story.
