A puppy pulled from a flooded car during Hurricane Dorian has found a home with the Florida deputy who rescued her.

On Wednesday, Orange County Sheriff's deputies responded to a partially flooded car in a ditch while working hurricane response.

During a check of the vehicle, deputy Josh Tolliver found a "wet and scared" puppy inside.

After the rescue, the pup was evaluated and named Dorian after the powerful hurricane looming just off Florida's east coast.

The sheriff's office in their initial post said that Dorian would be turned over to Orange County Animal Services.

In a happy update on Thursday, the sheriff's office says that Dorian has been adopted by her rescuer, Deputy Tolliver, and is now "living her best life."
