    A Florida man and his beloved pet have been reunited after he said the dog was stolen from his truck in downtown West Palm Beach more than a year ago, according to NBC affiliate WPTV.

    On Sunday, Barry Gearhart made an emotional Facebook post saying his pet had been located. That day he had made one last push on social media to find Titan.

    "I've cried over this dog for more than a year," Gearhart said.

    Miraculously, a few women recognized the dog, which they had seen at a local pound going by the name Hank.

    Gearhart rushed over and confirmed that it was indeed his pit bull named Titan.

    "I cried. I cried when I realized it was him," Gearhart recalled.

    Monday, Gearhart finalized the paperwork and was able to bring Titan home.
