HOBOKEN - The image of Shaggy the Dog being rescued by the National Guard during Sandy is making national headlines.

Shaggy and his owner, James Way, were trapped inside their Hoboken home by Sandy floodwaters before being rescued. The image captured that day is all over the Internet, newspapers, and is even making headlines on national TV.

The popular bearded collie has gotten a haircut and a makeover since the storm.

Shaggy's future plans could include a book for kids. A children's author has expressed interest in publishing a book about Shaggy and his story.

All proceeds would go to Sandy victims.
