After three weeks of a desperate search for his beloved pit bull, Jesse James Tweeted today that he and CinnaBun have been reunited.

Along with a photo of Cinnabun putting her paws up to his chest in a happy greeting, James posted this message: “So Happy! Thnx Everyone for all the help! She looks like she hz had quite the Adventure!”

James had hired a pet detective and offered a reward of $5,000 for the dog’s return. According to TMZ, the West Coast Choppers honcho got a call from someone who had seen CinnaBun’s picture on a flier. The woman brought CinnaBun to James’s Long Beach bike shop, where upon sight of the long-lost pooch, the crew started crying.

We bet that CinnaBun, who lost 15 lbs. in the weeks that she’s been gone, will get to enjoy a nice meal and a warm bed tonight!
