Sneaky Dachshund Loves To Steal Household Items From His Family
Flynn the adorable dachshund loves to play games. In fact, one particular game Flynn loves to play involves taking things around the house that don't belong to him when his family isn't looking.
The four-year-old dog has gotten quite good at stealing things when no one else is looking. "He loves the challenge of taking things he's not allowed to have. It all started when he was a puppy, but he never seemed to grow out of it," Francesca Emmingham, Flynn's pawrent, told The Dodo.
Flynn's list of treasures he's managed to get a hold of include silverware like forks and spoons, bowls, cutting boards and even the television remote control. Luckily, Flynn doesn't tend to attempt to chew or eat any of the items. Rather, once he gets the goodies, he sits somewhere and proudly shows them off while holding them in his mouth.
"He normally likes people to notice him with whatever he's got, but if they don’t, he hides under the coffee table so nobody can get to him. But honestly, the candle he stole has got to be the weirdest," Flynn's owner told The Dodo.
Flynn is no thief, though, with strangers. He only steals items in his own home around his family, but he doesn't steal things when he's a guest in other people's homes. "He's very respectful of other people's homes. But the same can't be said for ours." Emmingham explained to The Dodo.
Flynn's unique obsession caught the attention of many on social media. Emmingham's tweet about her pup's quirky habit has gotten nearly 70,000 likes and nearly 30,000 retweets.
