Country music star Dierks Bentley's lost dog has been found following a Twitter.com appeal.

The Home singer's pet, Jake, ran away from his Tennessee home during a thunderstorm on Sunday (13Jan13) and Bentley tweeted followers for help after his beloved pooch had been missing for five hours.

He wrote, "Praying someone found him. A cold wet white dog. Red collar. Still looking... We really appreciate all the support. Overwhelmed by it. Thank you."

Then, on Monday (14Jan13), the star returned to Twitter.com with some good news.

He added, "omg (oh my god). my wife just told me someone found jake on facebook and is bringing him to our house!"

Bentley later added, "and here he is!!! thank you anna belle!! she swooped in and picked jake up after he was almost hit by another car."
