A family in Lyndhurst, New Jersey is offering a reward for their pet dog that works with children with special needs. The two year old boxer named Champion was last seen July 15th at about noon running along Broad St. towards Route 19, Route 46 and the Garden State Parkway in Clifton.

Christopher Lynch, Champion's owner, says the 75 lb. boxer in great shape and as a result would probably draw attention. He's brown with a black face and white on his chest.

Champion works daily with children with special needs at the Windsor School in West Milford.

The students he visits daily come from unstable home situations and backgrounds.

Champion's owner says the dog has become one of the only stable components of these kids' lives, especially since they've raised him since he was eight weeks old.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Lynch family at 973-879-313 or 973-557-8644, or their local police station or animal shelter.
