The dog was returned to (his owner) after a man bought him for $100 in Journal Square on Tuesday. When the man saw an article about the dog-napping in The Jersey Journal that day, he got in touch with Fadden on Wednesday.
“I was elated, overjoyed. I couldn’t believe it,” Fadden said while holding Blackjack outside of her Baldwin Avenue home. “I’m glad that the man who bought the dog did the right thing. He read the article and said he felt bad.”
Fadden said she paid the man a $500 reward for bringing the 21/2-year-old dog back to her.
