Dog lost during Superstorm Sandy is found at pound

Eatontown, N.J. (AP) -- A New Jersey family whose terrier-pitbull mix escaped from their backyard during Superstorm Sandy went to an animal shelter this week to adopt a new pet and came home with their old dog.

Chuck James tells The Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1obhJ2n) that his family searched for their brown-and-white dog named Reckless for months after the October 2012 storm before finally giving up hope.

The family of five went to the Monmouth County SPCA on Thursday to adopt a new animal. James says he and his wife got teary-eyed when they approached the first cage and saw Reckless inside.

SPCA officials say Reckless was picked up as a stray and has now been microchipped.

The family is living in a hotel while their storm-damaged Keansburg home is repaired.
