Woman Reunited With Her Dog After 16 Months (VIDEO)

Holidays bring families back together, but some reunions are especially sweet. Christine Johnson shared how she was reunited her dog Marshall, a Shetland sheepdog, with HuffPost Live host Mike Sacks on Wednesday.

Marshall disappeared about 16 months ago when Christine let him out to take care of business, and she searched for him with the help of friends and family, but in vain. However, on Christmas Day, they were reunited thanks to a stranger turning Marshall in to the pound.

"It's very had to believe," Johnson told HuffPost Live. "It's something that I had prayed for over and over again, many days and many nights... to see him again, it's like a miracle. It really is."
