Perrette is offering $5,000 to anyone who will help find her friend Arthur Renowitzky's service dog.
"Love," an apricot-colored poodle, disappeared during an outing at the San Leandro Marina Wednesday night.
NCIS star Pauley Perrette is on a mission to find "Love." The tiny apricot-colored toy poodle disappeared Wednesday night during an outing at the San Leandro Marina.
Now Perrette is offering $5,000 to anyone who will help find her friend Arthur Renowitzky's service dog. A civil rights activist and motivational speaker, Renowitzky runs the non-profit Life Goes On Foundation.
Six years ago, Renowitzky was the victim of an armed robbery outside a club in San Francisco, which shattered his spine and left him paralyzed chest down at the young age of 20. Renowitzky and Love have been together since then.
"She's been with me throughout everything. She goes to all speeches and to hospital to visit patients with spinal cord injuries ... She cheers up patients," Renowitzky said. "She means the world to me I really need to get her back."
Chihuahua in Freeway Rescue Photo Reunited With Owners Renowitzky said that he went to exercise at the San Leandro Marina and parked in the handicap spot around 8 p.m.
"I got in the wheelchair and took my eyes off her for a second and she was gone," he said.
Since Perrette -- who plays Abby Sciuto on the television series NCIS -- found out about Renowitzky's ordeal, she has been tweeting to get the word out about Love.
Pauley Perrette and "Love" the dog seen in this photo provided by the Perrette Family. "He really needs his dog back," Perrette said in a phone interview from Los Angeles, where she lives.
Perrette met Renowitzky in Los Angeles a year ago, when he was speaking at a children's event. Someone ran over his wheelchair, and Perrette bought him a new wheelchair after she found out about it on the news. They have been friends since then.

Perrette said that Love, albeit only 5 pounds, would protect Renowitzky at all times.
"I am not going to stop," she said. "We will get her back."
Anyone with any information is urged to call (510)-712-8676.
Are there any Korean restaurants in the neighborhood?
Good for her.
Thought she was looking for something I could actually give her.
Over and out...
It is Los Angeles...
No harm in trying, anyway.
I think she’s hot...
UPDATE: Dog has been found.
I’m glad the dog has been found and is back wth his person. I just can’t wrap my mind around what type of person could steal a dog that clearly belongs to someone and sell it for financial gain, when there are so many doggies that need homes in shelters.
To steal someone else’s dog implies, to me at least, you don’t have a heart.
I bet she feels the same way about you.
Good job, Abs.
Don’t agree with Perrette’s political views, but can admire her passion for what she believes in. Good job, Abbs.
Abby alert! :o)
