ELIZABETH, NJ - There was a happy ending for a family who on Thursday lost their one-year-old dog.  

Bear, a Jack Russell Terrier, was reunited with his owners after he went missing on Livingston Street. Family members sent flyers to TAPinto Elizabeth and posted pictures around the city and social media to find the pup. 

"I found my [baby] Bear!" Vilma Raurau, one of the dog's owners, told TAPinto Elizabeth this morning.

It was one of those flyers that led to the dog's safe return. A good Samaritan saw a flyer that Raurau posted in a local pizzeria and called the family.

Bear was reunited with the family yesterday, Raurau said.
