Fergus, a 200-pound Irish Wolfhound, was thrown from the car as family members say a minivan hit their Expedition on Saturday.

More than 1,400 people came together to try to find the dog by joining the group "Find Fergus" on Facebook.

Yesterday, Fergus was reunited with his family. It was an emotional moment for everyone.

"As many of you already know, Fergus is HOME!" Meredith Luckett wrote on Facebook. "We were contacted early this morning with word that Fergus had been found about half a mile southwest from the site of the accident. The homeowner spotted Fergus and said he walked right into her home when she called for him. We rushed over to the home, and unbeknownst to us, a volunteer recorded this portion of our eagerly-awaited reunion. I’ve watched this video over and over again because it still feels like a dream!"

Luckett says Fergus suffered minor cuts and bruises and is home resting comfortably -- and being treated like a king.

"This reunion wouldn't have been possible without the efforts of HUNDREDS of amazing volunteers who worked tirelessly since Saturday evening to help us comb the streets and spread the word about our boy. Nashville, you showed up! We are still overwhelmed by the incredible response we received from our community and beyond, and we are eternally grateful. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
