The dog was an escape artist, says Cerullo, who must have run out of her house during the storm. “She kept running away from anyone who initially tried to help her – probably trying to get back home – but she’d always come back, or someone managed to always catch her, eventually,” Cerullo says. On the final “catch,” she was taken to a veterinarian, cleaned up, and cared for.
