THIS tiny Chihuahua called Rumpelstiltskin ATE his owner to stay alive.
The pooch was adopted from a shelter, and his new owner posted his story on a Facebook group for “adopted” pets.
But Tyfanee Fortuna shocked users when she said how her “survivalist” pet was forced to eat “his human” after he died.
The post has gone viral and many Facebook users felt conflicted by the horror tale, with some saying they had “so many emotions” about Rumpelstiltskin the dog.
Posting on the Dogspotting Facebook group, Tyfanee, from New Jersey, wrote: “Maybe this is the group where he finally gets the recognition he deserves. This is Rumpelstiltskin and he is 4lbs of love and nervous shaking.
“I adopted him 1yr ago from an animal shelter because his owner died.”
But then her seemingly innocuous message took a dark turn.
She added: “Bonus info: his owner was dead for a considerable time before anyone noticed and he did eat his human to stay alive. +1 for being a survivalist pupper.
“His legs are weirdly long for his small body and also bowed out in a way that makes them look like a fancy table. He likes food, undivided attention, and sleeping for many hours at a time.”
Her post has racked up a whopping 4,000 likes and more than 800 comments.
She later revealed that the dog’s previous owner had been dead for two weeks when their body was found, meaning the little dog would have been starving when it was forced to eat him.
Commenters were split between praising the dog and thinking it was “gross”.
One user wrote: “Bless his heart & his Queen Anne legs. Any animal would do what he did to survive & look at the size of him it’s not like he’d eat much is it.”
Another wrote: “He scares me but I love him.”
Others called Rumpelstiltskin “brave”
Some other users simply commented on the pint-size pooches appearance and bow legs.
Most Facebookers were happy that the tiny little dog was able to find a new loving home.
