The pup chosen to star as Sandy in the Broadway revival of "Annie" has been announced -- and it's (appropriately) a rags-to-riches story.
Four months ago, animal trainer William Berloni spotted online photos of Sunny, a 2-year-old female terrier mix, while conducting a nationwide search for the part.
The Houston pound holding Sunny incorrectly listed her as a male by the name Bruno. When Berloni learned the dog was due to bei euthanized, he decided to adopt Sunny, not for the role, but to find her a home.
"I didn't think she was a candidate for Sandy," he told the Associated Press.
Berloni had a change of heart when the pair got nose-to-nose in New York. "I met her and went, 'Wow, she could really be a candidate,' " he said. "She's going to be fantastic."
