My daughter hasn't been sleeping or eating since our beloved labrador was stolen

DEAR DEIDRE: EVER since her beloved chocolate labrador was stolen two weeks ago, my daughter has not been eating or sleeping.

Our dog is only ten months old and was snatched from our back garden.

My daughter is nine years old and autistic.

She cannot understand what has happened and I keep finding her in our dog’s bed.

She is also having terrible nightmares and will not be consoled. I feel desperate.

I have been on social media and told everyone I know what has happened.

I have been amazed at the response from locals, trying to help me find our pet.

I know many families are in the same position. It is horrendous.

DEIDRE SAYS: Sadly, dog theft more than tripled in 2020 because of gangs cashing in on the demand for puppies during the pandemic.

Many dogs are being stolen from their homes and used for intensive breeding.

Contact Blue Cross Pet Bereavement Support Service, which is there for anyone struggling to cope with the loss of a pet, whether through theft, separation or death (, 0800 096 6606).

I hope you are reunited with your dog soon.
