It was a made-for-morning television moment: a local reporter, a lost puppy and a tornado victim.

Amanda Guerra, a reporter for NBC's Dallas-Fort Worth affiliate, found the 10-month-puppy, Brownie, amid the rubble in Lancaster, Texas, one of the towns hit hard by Tuesday's tornadoes. While touring the devastation, Guerra said her news crew discovered Brownie roaming around one of the damaged homes.

Brownie's owner was not home when the storms hit. So Guerra reunited the pup with its owner, who said Brownie likely weathered the storm outside in her cage.

The SPCA of Texas said it transferred 48 animals28 dogs, 14 puppies, four cats and two kittensfrom Lancaster Animal Services on Wednesday "so the agency can concentrate on dealing with pets that were lost during Tuesday's storm."
