    Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale — a tail, really — about a brave beagle and a family's refusal to give up.

    Buddy, a 4-year-old beagle, was reunited with his New Jersey family on Monday after 98 days spent on unihabited Gull Island in New Jersey' Manasquan Inlet. The Kelleys, of Eatontown, N.J., lost control of Buddy on Aug. 31 as the family attempted to switch the dog's leash while frolicking on Dog Beach in the Manasquan.

    Two months later, Buddy — who had lost so much weight he was little more than skin and bones — was spotted along railroad tracks near the deserted island.

    "The Coast Guard said they had seen him digging in the sand," Edith Kelley told FoxNews.com. "He might've been looking for clams or sand crabs."

    awwww poor little fellow.


    When we rescued our starving little lady beagle she was skin and bones, and would drink her own pee. Animals are amazing. They give love and never ask for a damn thing in return.
