A dog that went missing after a car crash in southern New Jersey last month has finally been reunited with its owner.

Jax, a rottweiler-boxer mix, was riding in a car driven by 23-year-old Gabrielle McMillan of Little Egg Harbor, when she struck a utility pole on Route 72 in Stafford Township on June 24. The car then rolled over and Jax somehow escaped and ran off.

McMillan was injured in the crash and was taken to a hospital. She has since returned home and continues to recover.
