MOORE, Oklahoma -

A photo of a mud-splattered pup taken by the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office takes on new significance after its owner's body is recovered.

"Man's best friend to the end," the Sheriff's Office posted on its Facebook page Tuesday.

Deputies initially released a photo Monday of the small black dog sitting in debris following the devastating EF-5 tornado with the comment "scared, this little pup survived."

On Tuesday they learned the dog was guarding his deceased owner whose body was recovered.

"The dog was taken to a shelter and the deputy who found the pup, if possible, plans on adopting the dog," the OCSO tweeted on Tuesday. "Man's best friend to the end."
