A PET lover who was brought up in Topsham is offering a cash reward for anyone who can find his missing dog.
Craig Aggett, 39, of Seabrook Avenue, lost his miniature dachshund on Friday, November 27.
He said the dog, called Scooby, wandered out of the door at his home and never returned.
Mr Aggett said his partner, Toni White, and two young children, an eight and 13-year-old, were all devastated without him being around.

"It was really bad weather that evening so he wouldn't have wanted to stay out that long but he never came back.
"I went out looking, couldn't find him and then waited until the next day. We couldn't find him then either so we started to put 'missing' leaflets out.
"We notified all the veterinary clinics and all the animal shelters to see if he'd been pulled in but they've haven't seen or heard anything."
Mr Aggett, who has had Scooby since 2005, said the cash reward was more than �250.
The dog is black and tan and its tail has a distinctive feature of some hair missing.
Details about the missing dog are featured on a number of posters displayed around Topsham.
"He may have wandered too far and not found his way back. The dog warden seems to think from her own experience, because it's a rare breed, someone may have picked him up.
"He is quite friendly and somebody may have taken a shine and kept him."
