Tiny dog at former owner

Say what?! This tiny dog ate his former owner

The owner of a tiny (just four pounds!) dog shocked members of the Facebook group Dogspotting Society when she revealed details of the small pooch’s past.

Owner Tyfanee Fortuna told followers of the group that her adopted dog, Rumpelstiltskin, became homeless when his owner died. Fortuna offered a bit more about her dog’s sad past:

Bonus info: his owner was dead for a considerable time before anyone noticed and he did eat his human to stay alive.

Fortuna wasn’t put off by Rumpelstiltskin’s dark past – instead, she refers to him as a “survivalist pupper.” Suffice to say, followers of the Dogspotting Society group were shocked by the revelation. One person jokingly stated, “Don’t fall asleep on the couch,” while another stated, “lol omg savage doggo!” Some people said that they were happy that Rumpelstiltskin wasn’t put down because of his actions and others expressed sadness that he was forced to eat his human to survive.

The October 25 posting certainly generated a lot of attention – with thousands of shares and over 800 comments.

    The dog did what he had to do and probably just started licking his owner trying to wake him up, and then the rest followed. Who checked in on the elderly owner and dog? No one, and glad this small dog is being done away with because of what happened. Some things require common sense, which many in authority don’t seen to use.

    Rumpelstiltskin did what he did to stay alive – he is one brave little guy who should not be blamed for saving himself when he had no other choice. May he and Tyfanee have a wonderful life together.

    It’s sad that nobody noticed that the owner was dead. Nobody was worried when they didn’t hear from them or see them. It sounds like the dog might have been the only living contact this person had, and when they died, the dog was left without food or water. You hear stories of humans eating humans to survive after things like plane crashes. It’s survival instinct. I’m just happy the dog wasn’t killed over this and that someone was willing to give him a chance. A happy ending for a very sad story.
