DEIDRE LOVE: An older dog that I took in from an animal welfare organization fled my garden and has been missing for well over a month. I’m desperate.

This dog had been at the rescue center for years and needed a loving home. I did everything I could to settle her in, including sleeping next to her, to build trust.

I had only had her for two weeks, but she managed to escape. I’ve put up posters, searched the streets and kennels, and called anyone I can think of, but she hasn’t been spotted.

I am a 33 year old woman. I’ve had prank calls that haven’t helped my mental health. The stress made me sick. I feel like I have failed. I try my best to find her, but the guilt is overwhelming at times.
