This report is a couple of years old, but I only just came across it. It made me smile.
The pup was soon adopted, and (along with his unicorn) was sent for further training to ease his transition into family life.
Before Sisu and his unicorn left the shelter for their training at the rescue ranch, the pair made an important stop.
"We took him back to the Dollar General so he could see the employees there," explains Joe Newburn, a supervisor at Duplin County Animal Services.
. . .
"He actually had to go through the whole store to get to that unicorn. It was in the Easter section he went to that same unicorn and kept pulling it out, and finally, he had done it so much the store called us," Newburn explains of how Sisu came under the shelter's care.
. . .
After visiting his friends at Dollar General, Sisu moved to Lab Rescue LRCP to receive training to address his behavioral issues. Newburn says Sisu currently has trouble interacting with other dogs, likely due to his time as a stray, so the shelter wanted to provide him with training before sending the pooch to his new home. Lab Rescue LRCP's Sterrie Weaver will work with Sisu over the next few weeks to help the dog feel more comfortable around other canines and ready him for life in a home.

That's just too cute! Kudos to the animal control officer who bought him the unicorn. I guess we know why she chose her job.
