WATCH: Emotional reunion for a stolen dog

When Tripp the pit bull escaped his back yard last July, Kim Eastman got in her car to try and find him. She had no idea how long the search would take, and how far it would take them. Both Kim and her daughter Angel call Tripp an "escape artist" who was picked up by strangers and eventually taken to Butte, Montana.

For the past seven months Kim and Angel have posted his picture on Facebook and with lost pet organizations. They followed up on lots of tips and false leads, but earlier this month they got the call they were waiting for; Tripp was coming home.

After a 600 mile long cab ride from Dog Gone Taxi, they were finally a family again.
