A man who spent thousands to find his stolen poodle will be reunited with his best friend soon.

Owner Eddie Williams even rented a mobile billboard to roll through neighborhoods.

Eyewitness News has learned that Boomer is in police custody tonight, awaiting the reunion. Williams stumbled across Boomer in the care of a south side woman when he stopped at a gas station last week.

Williams contacted police after identifying Boomer from a surgery scar.
