Five years ago this week, we found a little girl running down our street in the pouring rain. The tiny pup, estimated to be 8-10 weeks old and weighing just a pound, immediately captured our hearts. After unsuccessfully searching for her owner, we decided to take her to the vet for a check-up. We named her Stormy.


During the stray hold period with animal control, we secretly hoped no one would claim her, as we had already fallen in love with her. When the hold period ended, we were thrilled to officially adopt her and welcome her into our family.

A Fitting Name: Meet Stormy, the Rainy Day Rescue

We named her Stormy, inspired by the pouring rain on the day we found her. She was soaking wet, cold, and shaky, but her life was about to change for the better.
Stormy now enjoys a life of luxury and love. She has her own dresser and jewelry box, a testament to just how spoiled she is. Our neighbors even tease us about her snow boots, snowsuit, hat, and scarf, which keep her warm and dry during snowy weather.
