Sunshine story: family reunited with dog lost in 2012 superstorm Sandy

Image from
During monster storm Sandy in 2012, mixed breed dog Reckless got out of the family's back yard. They searched for him for months with no result, and kept calling shelters. No trace of Reckless. 

Besides losing their dog, the house was damaged - it is still being repaired - and the family has lived in a hotel for a long time.

Last week they decided to surprise their daughter through getting a new dog. They headed to the Monmouth county SPCA, and the first cage along their path contained Reckless!

The SPCA officials asked if they could prove that he was his dog, and a friend sent over a photo with the family and Reckless before Sandy hit New Jersey.

The dog was recently picked up as a stray, and the family is finally reunited.
