Ray J’s adorable three-year-old dog Boogotti has allegedly been dognapped – and he’s offering a steep reward for her return.
The small, fluffy Maltese went missing from his California home and the singer is offering a whopping $20,000 (£15,300) for the dog’s safe return.
Taking to Instagram with a picture of the pupper, Ray J’s wife Princess Love, with whom he shares a 10-month-old daughter called Melody, wrote: ‘‘Hey everybody! I’m out of town and my dog BOOGOTTI is missing! If you’re in Woodland Hills, CA and found my dog, seen him or have any info PLEASE DM me! Please REPOST (sic)’
Princess also posted a picture of their pet on Instagram.
She has since revealed that she has video evidence of someone taking Boogotti from the property and driving off with him, threatening legal action if the pooch isn’t returned in the next three days.
In a note posted on the app earlier today, she said: ‘We have you and your car on security camera taking our dog. You have 3 days to come forward and collect the $20,000 REWARD… after that we will take action.
‘WITH POLICE AND BLOODHOUNDS. (sic)’
The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star said she would personally ‘track down’ the Black Dodge Charger car which the alleged dog thief used as their getaway and is shown on their home CCTV footage.
No, it’s not just to make themselves look adorable. Dogs curl up in a ball when they sleep due to an age-old instinct to keep themselves warm and protect their abdomen and vital organs from predators.
She captioned the post: ‘Either collect the money or go to JAIL. I will track down every Black Charger in the city of LA until I find you. So let’s do this peacefully or you will regret it.’
Ray spoke about the snow-white Maltese earlier this week, and recalled the moment the dog went from missing to kidnapped. He told TMZ: ‘I got some new information on my dog.
‘My dog was lost, but now somebody has taken my dog and put him in a car and drove off.
‘My dog went from being lost, to being stolen to kidnapped – or whatever you call it.’
Dog Safety During Blizzard Conditions
The 38-year-old rapper-and-actor said the family are ‘really worried’ that Boogotti is on the streets of Los Angeles on his own and are willing to ‘give whatever’ they require for his safe return.
He added: ‘If anybody knows about pets, it’s just like having a kid. It’s a part of the family and we’re just really worried about him … he’s out in the streets by himself.
‘Whatever it is, just please bring the dog back and we will give you whatever you need.’
