Man finds dog? Now that's news.

After a heart-wrenching, three-week, "cautiously optimistic" search, Jesse James was finally reunited with his beloved Cinnabun today.

"Woooooo Hooooo!!!! It's Her!!!" he tweeted, along with the first of several adorable pics of his reunion with the 10-month-old pitbull. "So Happy! She looks like she hz had quite the Adventure!"

James and wife Sandra Bullock hired pooch detectives Find Toto last month, offering a $2,000 reward for the dog, which was the shop pet for his West Coast Choppers and which had somehow escaped the premises last month.

"The search is over!" he wrote on his official blog, which was adorned with yet more photos celebrating the return of his four-legged friend. "We got a call from a gal by the name of Rosaura in Los Angeles today saying she had Cinny. Since we have had quite a few false alarms, we were cautiously optimistic. She said she'd bring Cinnabun to us, and everyone at the shop was really anxious for her to get here to see if it was, in fact, Cinny.

"The car pulls in, the door flings open, and out pops Cinnabun! It's been just over 3 weeks since we last saw her, and were starting to wonder if we'd ever get her back…and there she was."

And while the James gang is clearly reveling in the reunion, he's wasting no time in ensuring his best pal won't get lost again.

"We're taking her to the vet to get her all checked out and chipped, and GPS'd, and live-tracked by Google Earth…the works. We don't want to lose this little gal again!!!"

As for how the pooch fared during her sojourn away, she's almost as good as new.

"She's in good shape…maybe a few pounds thinner than when she left. But super happy to be home."

James thanked everyone who sent tips and well-wishes to the shop over the past three weeks, and offered up a "BIG thanks" to Rosaura, who wasn't aware the dog was missing until spotting a recent flyer, for returning Cinnabun. James says he will also make good on the reward.

"Let the barking, wrastlin', and bone chasing begin!"


Cinnabun is definitely a contender for our Very Important Pets gallery.
