DUPLIN COUNTY, N.C. -- A North Carolina dog is settling into his new forever home -- after getting attention for his shoplifting.

He's about a year old and named Sisu. Instead of a cat burglar, he's earned the title of dog burglar.

He repeatedly broke into a Dollar General in Duplin County, North Carolina -- and stole a purple unicorn.
