Family reunited with lost dog 18 months after Superstorm Sandy

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY - A New Jersey family thought their beloved pet was gone forever after he went missing during the chaos of Superstorm Sandy a year and a half ago. 

They called every shelter near their home but their attempts to find the dog named Reckless, repeatedly came up empty.   They finally gave up hope and broke down, deciding to get a new pooch. So the family traveled to a local animal shelter to find a new pet. 

Once there, lo and behold, the first dog they saw there was Reckless.


 “My wife looks down and sees the scar on his head and said that's our dog,” said Chuck James.

Reckless had spent the past five months at the animal shelter without being adopted.  The family says they are extremely happy to have their lucky boy back home, safe and sound.
