We can only imagine the sense of overwhelming joy, relief, and closure one Texas dog owner is feeling after getting a call that their stolen dog has been found. Three years after a Rotweiller went missing from a Texas backyard, the dog was found by a few caring people concerned for the pooch that was out running near Highway 36.

As they say, it's not over until it's over. Thankfully this owner microchipped the Rottweiler and when the Westminster Police Department was able to scan the dog, the rightful owner's information was found. The owner of the long-lost dog told the Westminster Police Department that someone took his dog from his yard three years ago.

Jessica Lockard commented on the Facebook post from the Westminster Police Department saying:

I am greateful I was able to be in the right place at the right time!! Also to know that this baby gets to go home to his rightful owners and be with his family yay!! He was so sweet! Safe journeys and I'm glad you're going home!!

The Westminster Police Department says that the owner is excited to be reunited with his dog and will be coming from Texas to pick the Rottweiler up in Westminster.

We're sure that the dog will be happy to be back home with his rightful owner. However, after being gone for three years, there is going to be a bit of adjustment on both ends for the owner and the dog as they get reacquainted with each other.
