Reckless & His Family
This family lost their beloved dog, Reckless, during hurricane Sandy. Chuck and Elicia searched for their dog for weeks after the storm but were unable to find him. A year and a half later, the family was ready for a new dog and went to a shelter looking to adopt. The family explained the kind of dog they wanted and the adoption counselor brought in the first candidate. Much to their surprise, it was their own dog Reckless!
When they saw their dog, Chuck said they "both got teary-eyed. The dog was licking us to death, he was jumping three feet in the air. He was home. He knew the ordeal was over."
Tasha & Her Owner
This dog was found roaming a neighborhood looking confused and distressed. A couple saw Tasha and brought her into their backyard, then took a picture and posted it to Facebook, hoping it would help them find the owners. Within 4 hours the photo had been shared 100 times and her owner was located. Tasha was accidentally let out the night before and her owners were relieved to know she was okay. Here's there reunion:
Rebecca & Casey
Rebecca was deployed for two years - her Schnauzer, Casey, was shocked and overly excited to finally see her again. The dog nearly passes out from over-exerting itself in barking and jumping around to welcome her home.
Rick & Karma
This is Karma. Her owner, Rick, is homeless. He enjoys her companionship and love so much that he makes sacrifices to maintain her well-being. Rick contracted an infection after jumping into a river to save Karma. When he learned that he needed to be hospitalized for an undetermined amount of time, Rick brought her to a rescue center. The center agreed to care for Karma while he received medical attention. Nearly three weeks later the companions were happily reunited... doesn't her face say it all?
