Dogs can be incredibly clever and witty when finding ways to communicate with us. A stray pup from Brazil proved how much of this could be true after going viral for stealing a book that clearly alluded to the situation he was in. To the many people who shared the pooch’s story on social media, it seemed like the pup was directly speaking to those around him.
When a random passerby went to Infinity Bookstore to return a book he had found on the streets, store employees had to find out how the book slipped out of their hands from the start. They looked through security camera footage to discover who stole it but were surprised when they discovered the thief’s identity.
To their surprise, the stray pup who had been hanging outside their store for quite some time turned out to be the culprit. From CCTV footage, the pup went into the store in a flash to grab the book entitled “Days of Abandonment.” As soon as he had the book in his mouth, he exited the store’s premises just as quickly, without anyone knowing he was inside.
The book’s title seemed to coincide with the pup’s situation, who had clearly been alone for a long time. Without a family to look after him, the pooch’s future was uncertain with the many dangers of the outside world. The stray pup probably wanted to say how abandoned he felt, so he grabbed a book that perfectly encapsulated his thoughts.
Although the book now has the pup’s teeth marks, store employees didn’t seem to mind this and focused their attention on getting the pup a forever home. The book was even treated as a souvenir for the unique experience the pup had brought to the store.
Now, many people are wanting to adopt the stray pup because of his unique way of telling his story. Discover more about the pooch’s heartwarming story with this video.
