Couple Reunites With Lost Dog After Postponing Their Honeymoon

Posted: Updated:
PENNSBURG, Pa. -

One local couple almost canceled their honeymoon to Hawaii because their beloved dog went missing.

Thankfully, their story has a happy ending.

"She's the sweetest, nicest dog, and she loves us and our other dogs. And she's just become a part of our family," said Amanda Stuart.

Amanda and Nick Stuart are supposed to be honeymooning right now in Hawaii, but the couple who just tied the knot on Saturday called off the honeymoon hours before they were supposed to board the plane because their beloved dog, Bailey, went missing.

Bailey is an 11-month-old Pit Bull.

Nick says his dad was supposed to watch her while the couple headed to Hawaii, but Saturday night Bailey bolted.

Since then, they say they've spent hours combing through the grassy area off of 663 with their other dog.

They've also spent what was supposed to be their first few days on the beach, posting flyers all around town.

On Wednesday, they started their search at 5 a.m.

And just when they thought all hope is gone.

Fox 29 cameras were there for the moment they'd been waiting for: Bailey was found.

It was an emotional reunion for everyone who had spent days searching.

"We're not leaving her anytime soon. She's gonna stay right in our eyesight," said Amanda.

Nick and Amanda say although their story has a happy ending plans for a honeymoon will remain on hold until they can get up enough nerve to part with their pets again.
