Update on Sisu, the unicorn stealing dog

https://iheartdogs.com/dog-arrested-for-attempted-unicorn-theft-finds-his-forever-home/?fbclid=IwAR2Q2iznBkfoSiVxyN-FDnQV3bIigj8axKVPWUzrFisWBCyKrC-Umxf2zRE











Last month, we shared the story of the young Lab mix, Sisu, who tried five separate times to steal the same unicorn from a Dollar General in North Carolina. People all over the country were touched by Animal Control Officer Samantha Laneís kindness of purchasing the purple unicorn for him. Never mind Sisuís adorable habit of snuggling up with and carrying the unicorn wherever he went!

Sisu and Officer Laneís story even inspired others to perform small acts of kindness of their own. Lynchburg Jewelry and Loan, a retail business in Virginia, decided to donate 50 purple unicorn dog toys to the Lynchburg Humane Society. Their hope was that families would see the adoptable dogs loving their toys, like they saw Sisu, and fall in love with and adopt them. They even sponsored some of the adoptable animals by covering their adoption fees.

While it was previously thought that Sisu had already been placed with a family, he hasnít yet found his forever home. Shortly after Officer Lane escorted him to Duplin County Animal Services, Sisu was sent to Lab Rescue LRCP. A non-profit, virtual organization that rescues, fosters, and finds forever homes for Labrador Retrievers in the mid-Atlantic states. The rescue pups are fostered in the homes of volunteers as they await their forever families.

On the way to his temporary foster home, Sisu made a short stop at the same Dollar General where he had attempted unicorn theft. snip

2. Sisu is not adopted yet?

And, yet, a little cockapoo on Facebook had over 5000 requests for adoption.

5. I'm sure, too. Dogs with even a brush with fame tend to be adopted right away.

4. What a sweet story!

I would give him a home if not for this alpha-male black Lab we had to adopt when my mother died. He has major attitude because he wasn't disciplined or socialized. My senile mother knew nothing about dogs & he came wandering into her yard, begging for food, so she kept him.

(He was even mean to our sweet Missy (Mimi) girl. Can you imagine?! We're so grateful to you for being the conduit that put that angel into our lives!
Oh, MM, she's been gone 5mos & we miss her like crazy, both of us still crying most every day. Yet we can't adopt another puppy because Ogee dog would mistreat it. )

They are aging Sisu at about 1 year

7. He's 11 now.

So his time will be up in a few yrs. He's very healthy for a dog of his age.

Even neighborhood dogs do not like him, yet they all loved Missy. We got many sympathy cards & even flowers sent to us when folks learned of her death. When does that ever happen for a dog?! She was an angel.

8. He might have some Lab, but that precious pup is mostly pitt bull. (I love pitties.)

Maybe they fear an honest description of his breed might damage his adoption chances.

But he is gorgeous and adorable.

9. My feelings exactly.

But it's presumably a lot easier to place a "lab mix" than a "pitbull mix."
Hopefully he finds a good home.

10. I agree

They evaluate them by personality too. And from what I've heard, he is a real sweetheart

12. Yes, I thought the same thing and read it twice.

My friend had a Pitt Bull and it was the smartest, most gentle, obedient, loyal dog I have ever known. She was the most gentle dog when my Chihuahua wanted to play (she thought the Pitt Bull was her sister). I think people have the wrong impression and that is why this one is named a "Lab mix.

11. So THAT'S what happened to all the unicorns!

I always thought that Noah just forgot them. Now I know hungry dogs got them all.
