A DEVASTATED Hillingdon woman is offering a £1,000 reward for the safe return of her dog.

Phoebe, a white, female Chihuahua, who has a fluffy white tail and pink and gold diamante collar, went missing from her home six weeks ago.

Her owner, Belarie Benaim, has put up posters, put fliers through doorways and contacted the police but there has been no progress, convincing her that someone must taken the dog.

She said: “It is so awful. Whoever did this does not realise the destruction they have done to our family.

“She is worth everything to me.”

Miss Benaim said Phoebe’s brother has been pining for her and would not come in from the garden and had not eaten for days.

Phoebe is microchipped, so anyone who finds her will be able to take her to a vet and have her details checked.

She was a birthday present from Miss Benaim to her 99-year-old, bedridden mother who passed away just a month before Phoebe went missing.
