CAPE CORAL, Fla.- A wayward dog has returned home.

It took two years an a journey of thousands of miles, but Endo the Bull Mastiff is back home with his family in Cape Coral.

Endo escaped from his home and ended up in Minnesota. But a recent scan of his microchip revealed who his true owners were.

Tonight, his family is happy to have him back home.

"He was nice, he was cool, he was relaxing, he was pretty good," said Hunter Hartzog.

"It's just an overwhelming ball of emotion that he's back. So excited and I can't wait to get inside and spend some time with him," Denise Hartzog added.

Through Facebook, people could track Endo's journey from Minnesota back to Cape Coral. Along the way, he stopped in Kentucky and Georgia to meet a few of his 285 Facebook fans.
