The Chesapeake Bay retriever took off around 2 p.m. Monday during a training exercise at Allaire State Park in Monmouth County. Apparently, Jack still has a ways to go in his studies: Police said he became distracted by a deer and chased it into the forest.

Jack, an Ocean County Sheriff's Office K-9, was found unharmed Tuesday afternoon about 24 hours after he was reported missing.

Though Jack has been schooled in scent work and tracking, he was unable to sniff his way back home. A man found the dog around 3 p.m. near the intersection of Interstate 195 and Route 34.

Officers said they were glad to have their canine companion back in time for Christmas.
