After abducting a stray from outside a restaurant after a drunken dinner, a Thai man and the adopted dog are now hugely popular on Instagram.

Earlier this month, Yutthaphum Kaewekhem went out for dinner and many beers later, decided he wanted to bring home one of the stray dogs hovering outside the restaurant.

He later shared a video on the incident on Facebook, which was recorded by a friend and showed him attempting to abduct a stray dog.

“Instead of stopping me, my friend recorded the videos before driving us home,” he wrote.

The next morning, Kaewekhem said he woke up to find a dog at home and even recorded a video of the animal walking around in his room.

Upset that he had ‘abducted’ the dog, Kaewekhem went back to the restaurant to return the animal to familiar surroundings. He even gave it food and snacks to ‘apologise’.

But when Kaewekhem returned some days later, he had a change of heart on finding the dog there and seeing that it was delighted to see him.

That’s when Kaewekhem decided to bring the dog home for good. He took it for a medical examination to a veterinarian and even got all the required vaccinations.

In his posts he explained that the animal was the perfect guest, who did not leave “any poop or pee in the house”. Kaewekhem also said that the dog also knew how to “turn on an electric fan all by itself.”

The dog was named, Moo Ta, which was inspired by the place where they first met.
