On March 26, 2021, in Duplin County, North Carolina a stray puppy broke into a Dollar General store to take a purple unicorn in the toy aisle. He tried to take a stuffed unicorn from the toy aisle and made 5 attempts before animal control was called. When they were called the animal control officer bought him his unicorn and they named the puppy Sisu. People donated purple unicorns to the shelter, so Sisu is never without his favorite toy unicorn. After a Facebook post went viral, Sisu was adopted within 5 days.
