CONCERN is growing for a missing puppy with severe allergies.

The seven-month-old ginger Shar-Pei, pictured, was last seen running over the fell at Hill End near Wolsingham in Weardale on Sunday.

She belongs to Gemma Reid, from Meadowfield, near Durham, and her family, who are desperate to find her.

Ms Reid said her nine-year-old son who has autism is especially upset, adding: “We are all distraught. She has to take eight tablets a day because of allergies and hasn’t had her medication for four days now.”

Anyone who spots the puppy can contact the Reid family on 07808-025849.
