Instead of being disciplined for his misdeeds, this unlikely shoplifter is being given more love and attention than ever before.

Last week, a stray dog was caught on camera sneaking into the Feevale University bookshop in Novo Hamburgo, Brazil. After managing to get past the front desk, the pup grabs a book in its mouth and trots out of the store.

But it wasn’t just any book – it was a book entitled “The Days of Abandonment”; a pretty relatable topic for many stray animals.

Before the dog had a chance to read the pages, one of the campus students retrieved the book and gave it to the astonished cashier who was working the front desk.

The bookshop staff was so tickled by the sneaky dog, they posted a video of the heist to Facebook where it later went viral.

As fate would have it, a group of local animal rescuers saw the video, stopped by the bookshop, and checked the dog into their care.

The dog was given a bath, its vaccinations, and a foster home for him to live happily ever after until he finds a forever home.
