ODESSA, Fla. — A Pasco County woman said her dog found a gopher tortoise painted blue while it was playing outside.
"We thought it was a rock because it was painted until it started moving on the floor. It was a little baby turtle. We picked it up instantly and told the dog, no. She didn't know any better," said Daylynn Hughes.
Owl's Nest Sanctuary for Wildlife in Odessa rescued the 2-year-old gopher tortoise.
