The Good Luck/ Bad Luck Family

Keansburg, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Recently the James family got their dog Reckless back after he was missing for more than a year following Superstorm Sandy. The family says they were lucky enough to find the dog in a shelter.

“It was like Oh My God , ya know? So my wife was like, that’s Reckless look at the scar on his head and the second we called him Reckless not Lukas which is the name it said on the thing, when we called him Reckless he jumped three and a-half feet in the air, that was it,” Chuck James explained.

The James family says that Superstorm Sandy flooded their Keansburg, New Jersey home and that the landlord later bailed and stopped paying the gas bill. As a result, the homes water pipes froze and broken and the family is currently looking at an indefinite stay in an Eatontown motel courtesy of Fanny Mae. Fanny Mae allegedly hired a contractor to begin remediation of their property, but permits have yet to be filed.

Keansburg officials say that the James home was never damaged by Sandy, but the family has paperwork including a condemnation form and letter from the town refusing a certificate of occupancy due to damage from the storm. The town also says that they never paid rent, something the family directly disputes.

The house is currently in foreclosure and the landlord couldn’t be reached for comment at this time.
