Precious first appears as she chases Surly as he raids the nut cart. He escapes her. It is shown that she is mistreated by King, but doted by his girlfriend Lana and his partner Lucky. She is then threatened to the sound of a dog whistle unless she gets rid of the rats and such that raid the nut shop which serve as the hideout.
