Trooper Rescues Toto After Twister E-mail

In Western Massachusetts, a puppy has been rescued from beneath the wreckage of a Monson residence that was demolished by a recent rare EF3 tornado. The 25-pound, six-month-old Sharpei-Chow mix was rescued a full three days after the tornadoes struck western Massachusetts. Police say trooper Brian Pearl crawled under a pile of splintered wood and broken glass and pulled the dog from the rubble. Pearl was patrolling Monson when a woman flagged him down for help to rescue the dog.

Pearl says he could hear the dog crying and barking, but couldn't see him.

Shadow's family arrived minutes later to take him home. State police say the family headed to their cellar with one of their two dogs, but that Shadow was literally pulled out of the house by the suction and winds from the twister.
