James Booth, a U.S. Navy Veteran, and his service dog, a Shar Pei, Pit Bull and Retriever mix, are the best of friends. They formed an extremely close bond and have been inseparable for the past ten years. Ladybug helped Booth adjust to civilian life after the Navy, and has helped get him through everyday life.
Booth couldn’t imagine his life without Ladybug, so when she was stolen along with his 2008 Dodge Caliber, he was absolutely heartbroken. The car, with Ladybug inside, was stolen in the parking lot of the Catholic Charities in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota.
