Sheriff’s deputy adopts puppy she saved from tornado

An Oklahoma sheriff's deputy went above and beyond the call of duty when she adopted a puppy she saved from a tornado earlier this year.

The tornado that hit Sand Springs killed one person and injured 30. It also left some animals homeless, including a puppy that was rescued by Tulsa County Sheriff's Deputy Amber Solomon.

"I see this little puppy and she just comes right up to me and I picked her up and she laid her head on my shoulder," said Solomon.

The puppy was brought to an animal shelter. Solomon said whenever animal control employees were heading to the shelter, she would have them check if the puppy was still there. The puppy always was and Solomon finally got to adopt her.

Solomon said she wanted to give the puppy a name that would associate her with the tornado so she could always remember the people who lost their homes. She ended up naming the puppy River after the River Oaks Mobile Home Park that was hit by the tornado
