EXCLUSIVE: Man whose car was stolen with dogs reunites with 1 dog

LAS VEGAS - UPDATE: Another dog was found early Wednesday morning after viewers saw this story and contacted police. Two are still missing.

The Rhode Island man whose car was stolen with four of his five dogs had an emotional reunion with one of his beloved pets on Monday afternoon.

8 News NOW cameras we're exclusively rolling to catch the beautiful moment between Joseph Covill and one of his Boston Terrier show dogs.

"Hey! Oh boy. Where you been," Covill excitedly asked as he greeted his dog.  "You're a good boy. What's going on? Where did you get the white nose? Where you been?"

Covill says his dogs are like members of his family, but three of his doggie relatives are still missing, so it's a bittersweet time for JCovill.

Boston Terrier Billy is back, but Covill is still missing three females dogs named Mary, Lucy, and Glow.  However, Covill says he will stay hopeful for the safe return of his other dogs.

Right now, Covill says he just Billy to be able to play and roll around with Glitter, the one dog Covill was holding when his PT Cruiser was stolen.

"I'm going to clean him up a little; run around with him, reunite him with his daughter and sees what happens."

Covill says he wants to send a big thank you to the Metro Police Department specifically the south central area command whose patrol officers have worked through the night to try to locate his dogs.

Metro Police also found Covill's PT Cruiser and took one person into custody.  Metro says detectives are doing everything they can to bring the dog family back together.
