BROOKLYN (PIX11) – A dog rescued during Superstorm Sandy is finally ready to start a new life.

A good samaritan found Midnight wandering the streets of Brooklyn during the brunt of the storm. With no sign of an owner or any tags, she took him to animal control.

He’s been quarantined for the last six months because of a wound on his paw.

“It could have been a rabies infected animal that bit him,” said Frank Floridia of Guardians of Rescue. ” Because of that we couldn’t release him to the public.”

Midnight will be taken to save a pet animal rescue in Port Jeff Station where he will be up for adoption.

“He’s a happy, energetic 4-year-old dog,” Floridia said. “He’ll be a good family dog.”
