A CONCERNED community has rallied round a desperate dog owner after his loving companion vanished from outside a city supermarket.

“We believe she could be in the Calder/Westerhailes area. If anyone knows anything or sees her please come forward and let us know.
“We are offering £250 reward for her safe return. No questions asked just let her go. She needs her medication for her back she will be in a lot of pain and distress.”
Worried neighbours told how Skye went missing in 20 minutes while her owner, who lives on Ford’s Road, Stenhouse, was grocery shopping on Sunday.
