When Hurricane Sandy hit, Chuck and Elicia James and their kids — Alexandra, Kelsey and Liam — were living in Keansburg, New Jersey, with their Pit Bull mix, Reckless. Everybody made it through OK, but their fence didn’t. It was mangled. That’s how Reckless got out. He escaped into the aftermath of the storm and vanished, according to the Asbury Park Press.
“We had a collar on the dog, but it got caught on the fence and came off,” James said.
They searched for the dog, to be sure. But as the months worn on, they lost hope.
