RIVERDALE - A dog rescued from a dog fighting ring is back home Monday after being reported missing Friday.

Misty was found in Brooklyn six weeks ago by a group of special needs students. She had scars all over her body and was severely malnourished.

She went missing in a wooded area of Morris County and a frantic search continued through the weekend until she came home.

A Riverdale family took her in and is nursing her back to health.
