Las Vegas visitor reunited with his missing dogs

LAS VEGAS - There is a bittersweet ending to a story 8 News NOW has been following all week. The last of four stolen show dogs has been found.

The story unfolded Monday when the dogs were first reported missing. They were in a car belonging to Rhode Island resident Joseph Covill. He was in the process of loading the car when someone stole it. 

Over the course of the week, three of Covill's dogs were returned. Unfortunately, one dog was hit by a car and died.

Many people in the community have followed Covill's story.

"I believe it and I know a lot of them and I'm getting calls from all over the country and all over the world, and Canada and England, Rhode Island, everywhere and I was just astonished. If it wasn't for your TV show and coming in and doing this, I probably wouldn't have any of these back at all," Covill said.

He says he owes the biggest thank you of all to the detectives and officers in the south central area command who have worked around the clock to help him track down the Boston Terriers. One dog was even delivered to him in the middle of the night.

Investigators say they have arrested one person and have another person of interest in this case. It's still an open investigation and police are working hard to get everyone who was responsible.
