We all know that shoplifting is not good and it has a legal consequence. But in this story, our canine buddy received the love it needed instead of being punished after it shoplifted in a bookstore.
One stray dog in Brazil decided to have some shoplifting experience.
In the CCTV video posted on Facebook by the bookshop staff, it can be seen that the stray dog is outside an open bookstore. This happened in Feevale University bookshop in Novo Hamburgo, Brazil.
The dog seems like waiting for the perfect moment to enter the bookshop. Once the staff in the cashier was pre-occupied, our canine buddy walked directly to a book stand.
It immediately grabbed a book and walked outside with it.
The funny thing is, our smart dog here decided to grab the book with the title “The Days of Abandonment”.
Coincidence? Planned? Nobody knows, but I am sure everyone will agree that the book has a pretty relatable topic for stray animals, which is abandonment.
The bookshop staff was amused by this incident. And they decided to post the video of our sneaky friend on Facebook.
The video posted became viral. It has 1.2 million views at the moment, with 5.5 thousand reactions and 1.8 thousand comments. The said video had been shared for 14, 531 times now.
It may have been fate and our sneaky friend is really lucky. The video posted became the way for it to be not a stray animal anymore.
A group of local animal rescuers took the dog into their care when they saw the viral video. They went into the bookshop and checked the dog.
The dog was given proper care once it was with the rescuers. It was given a bath, a medical check-up, and vaccinations. After these, a foster home was found for the sneaky dog.

Indeed, with this story, we can say that dogs are really smart animals. This dog looks like it used the book to relay the message it wants to the world – that it doesn’t like being abandoned and a stray animal anymore.
In the end, it got the love, care, attention, and pets it truly deserves.
