Stray Dog Steals Book From Bookstore, Goes Viral After They Notice Which Book Is Missing

Dogs really are an endless source of love and fun, but they will never stop surprising us with their intelligence.

Recently, the internet was thrilled by this homeless dog living in Novo Hamburgo, Brazil, who was caught on the security cameras of “Infinity” bookstore. After a random man from the street returned a book that had been missing from the store, the staff decided to playback the CCTV video to see what really happened. Turns out, the dog that had been sleeping in front of their entrance for a while, but had never been caught entering the store, finally made his move. He entered the bookstore completely unnoticed and headed right to the shelves as if he was a normal customer. This smart animal casually grabbed the book that he wanted and rushed out from the store.

When everyone saw what actually happened, they were even more surprised to find out that the book that this lonely dog stole from the store was titled “Days of Abandonment,” which probably describes the living conditions of the poor animal. This weird coincidence left everyone thrilled, and the book, that now has dog‘s teeth marks on the cover, is being kept at the bookstore as a souvenir. The dog himself, after this incident, was taken off the streets, taken care of and is ready to find his forever home. We hope he will!

Until recently the staff of the bookstore was surprised by the first book this animal stole (see the video of a thief caught in act below):

That's interesting and all, but why did it take the dog taking a book for him to get taken in? He slept in front of the bookstore "for a while". If he had never grabbed a book would he still be homeless?

A lot of countries have stray problems. Like literally thousands of strays roaming the streets. Shelters would be insanely expensive, what a lot of countries try to do in the meantime is care programs where all dogs are chiped (= id number) collected regularly for general vet controls and sterilized to slowly reduce the roaming populations. A thousand times better than option 2 which would be mass euthanisation.

The dog had been "living" in front of the store for a while, but it took stealing a book to be noticed and given a home? Sad.

Not all the countries have enough resources to provide a shelter to all stray dogs. They have other priorities.
