A couple burned out of their home in Barefoot Resort has picked up the black puppy that woke them up to flee as the fire approached early Thursday morning. Donna and Jim Finley were reunited this morning with 10-month-old Onyx, who had been recuperating at the Animal Hospital of North Myrtle Beach from burns to his stomach, rear and all four paws.

Onyx is expected to make a full recovery. The Finleys' home didn't fare as well. The house in Barefoot Resort was destroyed by the fire.

The animal hospital, which treated Onyx for free, has treated or housed a dozen other animals affected by the fire.
