Jeremy Renner is breathing a sigh of relief after the safe return of his beloved pup, Hemi.

The Bourne Legacy star has been on tenterhooks ever since the one-year-old French Bulldog got loose from his home near popular hiking trail Runyon Canyon in Hollywood, California.

A power outage at the actor's home caused the front gate to open, allowing the little fella to wander out on July 19.

Desperate to locate his gorgeous tan-coloured missing pooch, the 42-year-old went so far as to create a Facebook page for Hemi, who requires daily medication for a hip condition.

He even offered a $5000 reward with no questions asked.

On Thursday, the father-of-one - who welcomed daughter Ava in March with Canadian model girlfriend Sonni Pacheco - was relieved to get a call from a woman who found the Frenchie with her son a mere 189 miles from his home, in Visalia, California.

A rep for the Hollywood star confirmed the happy development to E! News on Thursday.

'Hemi is back home. He was found yesterday... in Visalia,' they said. 'Jeremy is so happy to have his dog back home.'

The star took to Facebook to announce the dog's safe return and thank everybody for keeping a vigil.

'Thank you so much to all of our wonderful fans and followers. Your tireless work, support, faith, and positive messages helped to bring Hemi home.

'Because of everyone here - and because of everyone YOU shared with - Hemi is safe and sound, and we are all totally elated. We could NOT have done this without you, and for that, you will have our gratitude forever.

'We are touched by the generosity and love you all have shown to a dog you don't even know. Thank you for caring so much. Hemi and Family.'

Hemi is said to be 'in good general health' despite his ordeal and recovering at home with his family after getting the once over by the vet.

And just to make sure it doesn't happen again, the rep confirms, 'He has gotten new collars and ID tags, and even a GPS unit for his collar!'
