A New York Army veteran is pleading for the return of his young service dog, who was stolen in an attack on Mother’s Day while the vet was out walking the 8-month-old puppy in the Bronx.
“I was attacked from behind,” Lebron told the TV station.
He said he’s devastated by the loss of the animal.
“What she gives me I can’t get from someone else: not a therapist or a family member or my friend,” he said.
“It’s unconditional love.”
Lebron served in Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks as an Army Ranger.
He’s asking for help finding his stolen dog.
