A Florida police officer adopted a puppy just prior to the arrival of Hurricane Dorian. He was serious about helping save the 6-week-old puppy prior to the disaster.
This story has been shared on Facebook by the Fort Pierce police department. During one of their shifts, cops Michael Jean and Martin Ortiz responded to a report from a neighborhood resident. According to the resident, she was unable to care for her puppy.
Upon assessing the scenario at the caller’s residence, Michael fell instantly in love. The puppy was very cute! He then informed his wife via FaceTime about the pup and showed her the dog. His son, who was also on FaceTime at that time, wanted the puppy after seeing it.
Dory was a Brindle Pitbull and she was too young to be brought to the shelter, despite the fact that she was supposed to be brought there by her previous owner. The dog was quite fortunate to have met Michael as he chose to bring the puppy home.
The police department was on Michael’s side, and they encouraged him to adopt Dory. And with the approaching storm, Michael decided that the puppy would best go with him home.
The National Hurricane Center predicted that Hurricane Dorian would not make landfall. Despite that prediction, it was still prudent for people to take precautions because hurricanes of this nature sometimes change course. And it surely did.
It was fortunate that people actually made preparations and that individuals like Michael were able to help out. Hurricane Dorian did cause widespread destruction, and for a dog that doesn’t completely grasp what’s going on, it’s wonderful that Michael was able to take Dory home with him and have a warm, loving family there to care for him in the midst of a big catastrophe.
