Department officials said he pulled the speckled-coat puppy out and named her Dorian. A photo shared by OCSO shows Tolliver smiling wide as he holds tiny little Dorian in his hands.

Deputies said Dorian will be turned over Wednesday to Orange County Animal Services.

In preparation for the storm, OCAS turned offices into bedrooms for the staff to spend the night at the facility and take care of the more than 400 animals housed at the shelter.

Shelter officials said it will reopen Thursday.
