I saw this story recently – A stray dog kept stealing a purple unicorn from Dollar General, so an animal control officer bought it for him: https://www.ksdk.com/article/life/animals/stray-dog-steals-purple-unicorn-from-dollar-general-in-duplin-county-and-animal-control-officer-buys-it-for-him/83-bc083585-b79e-49a4-9358-ffafc346335a. Longer article, but here are some basics. Thought it was a cute story. Update: Susi and unicorn have been adopted: https://wcti12.com/news/local/stray-dog-who-befriended-purple-unicorn-finds-adopter. Dollar General will be sending a pet food donation to the animal shelter, giving Susi a few more purple unicorns, and recognizing the animal control officer who purchased the purple unicorn for Susi.

DUPLIN COUNTY, N.C. — Nobody likes a thief, but you might make an exception for this one.
A stray dog in Duplin County, North Carolina just couldn’t stay away from a stuffed purple unicorn inside a Dollar General. The dog named ‘Sisu’ kept breaking into the store and stealing the stuffed animal. Duplin County Animal Services said an animal control officer was called to the store, and the officer ended up buying the unicorn for the pup.
Sisu is now at the Duplin County Animal Shelter – available for adoption – and we think it’s safe to say, he and his purple unicorn are a package deal!https://www.ksdk.com/article/life/animals/stray-dog-steals-purple-unicorn-from-dollar-general-in-duplin-county-and-animal-control-officer-buys-it-for-him/83-bc083585-b79e-49a4-9358-ffafc346335a
