A New Orleans woman has been reunited with her golden retriever that she lost in Hurricane Katrina, after a couple from Normal decided to give the dog back. The Humane Society of Central Illinois flew “Goldie” to Bloomington after the dog had been rescued.

A local family adopted the dog and the original owner, Deborah Marks, sued to get it back. Marks claimed she left her home during Katrina to get insulin for her aunt, but was not allowed back in New Orleans when she returned to get her dog.

The attorney for Marks, Dominic Salvati of Bloomington, says the suit was dismissed after the couple agreed to give the dog back to Marks. She drove from Louisiana to Normal to get Goldie.
