A distraught family has put up a £1,000 reward for the safe return of their beloved dog Bean.
The three-year-old whippet/lurcher cross disappeared from the Forman family's front garden near Congresbury last month.
The family believe Bean was stolen.
Dave Forman said: “She was originally a rescue dog but we gave her a loving and stable home and we just don't think there's any way she would have run off.
“We're convinced she was stolen from our front garden and we will do everything we can to find her and bring her home.”
Bean joined the family during a difficult time and 'helped them through some extremely dark days' and they have been left 'devastated' by the ordeal.
The family has clubbed together to raise £1,000 as a reward for Bean's safe return.
Mr Forman added: “Someone somewhere knows what's happened to Bean.
“We are spending all of our free time making and putting up posters and spreading messages across social media and hopefully this cash reward will encourage someone to come forward with vital information.”
Bean is a sandy-coloured dog and has been microchipped and neutered.
She was wearing a collar when she disappeared.
