In Sherman Oaks, California, a $10,000 reward has been offered to help find a homeless man’s service dog that disappeared on New Year’s Eve.

According to FoxNews, the dog’s owner, Jimmy Nicholas is pleading with the public to help find “Boots” – his brown Labrador retriever.

Nicholas works part-time as a greeter at Start Rescue Resale Store that funds pet rescue adoptions. On New Year’s Eve, a woman had walked into the store and offered to groom Boots. Nicholas said the woman had groomed his dog once before, but this time she didn’t return him. She claims she took the dog to the park, and he ran away after two strange men approached her – and she ran from the area frightened.

The owner of the store doesn’t think the woman is telling the truth, and repeated calls to her have gone unanswered. The authorities have been notified.

“Jimmy and BOOTS are a homeless pair that have been coming to the START Rescue Resale Store for nearly 4 years now. Jimmy does odd jobs in the store as BOOTS supervises, has a meal or takes naps. Jimmy also brings small pieces of furniture he finds at peoples curbs that are being discarded for us to sell at the store.
As a young teen Jimmy was removed from an abusive home and placed in a foster care facility. From there he was put out on the street and has been on his own ever since.
Jimmy and BOOTS are part of the START Rescue family. BOOTS and he have a very strong and incredibly sweet and endearing bond. BOOTS gets very nervous and agitated when Jimmy leaves his sight. Jimmy is a kind and generous man and considers START his family and often tells us how we have been the only people who have cared about him and he cries when he tells us how grateful he is. Makes us cry too!”

Anyone with information about Boots, please call 971.506.6026.
