Three-legged dog steals sausage from supermarket - video
Oscar was caught on CCTV stealing a sausage from a supermarket in the city of Invercargill earlier this week.
The pet is thought to have escaped from his home while his owner was away on holiday.
Hundreds of people in New Zealand have now offered to adopt the three-legged canine.
Supermarket owner Esmay Hay joked: "[Robbers are] usually of the two-legged kind."
She added: "We've noticed movement on the security cameras out the back, and there's been nobody here, so we're assuming now that Oscar may have paid us a visit before."
An Invercargill City Council official has stated that Oscar will stay at the pound until his owner reclaims him. However, if this fails to occur, Hay's daughter has been met with many calls from people offering him a home.
