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.
