Tropical Storm Florence: Dog helps displaced baby squirrel find shelter

SEVEN LAKES, N.C. -- After a Moore County dog found a squirrel that was drenched and displaced from Hurricane Florence on Friday, the dog's owner couldn't help but give it some shelter.

Meg Baker DeMolet, a kindergarten teacher in Pinehurst Elementary School, is caring for the little creature. She told ABC that her dog, Rosie, carefully brought it home.

"Since we both enjoy grapes, Rocky and I will ride out the storm together," she wrote.

On Saturday, DeMolet reached out to ABC to give an update on Rocky, saying he's warm and dry and very active.
