ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Orange County deputies were investigating a suspicious vehicle crashed into a ditch when they came across a furry surprise.
Deputy Tolliver discovered a pint-sized pup in the partially flooded car.
The department 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.
