An appeal has been made to help find a missing puppy whose owner has died.
Stroud District Council animal welfare service is asking the public for help to find Bella - a chocolate coloured lab cross springer pub.
Bella has a collar and tag but the phone number on it won't work as her owner has passed away. The rest of Bella's family are desperate to have her back:
We really need to get this baby home, her family have been through enough.
Bella was last seen at around 1.30pm on Tuesday at Lye Farm, Uley.
After the appeal was launched on Wednesday, residents have been out searching for Bella in groups but they have yet to find her - there have been no sightings since Tuesday.
Posting on their facebook page, Stroud District Council's animal welfare service included a request from a local farmer who has asked that anyone out looking for Bella does not enter private farm land.
The effects of last weekend's extreme weather continue to be felt even as floodwaters recede. Today, emergency crews helped to deliver bales of hay to 60 horses that have been stranded all week in fields near Gloucester.
Their owners rented the land without realising the threat of floods. The RSPCA has warned that people with animals need to be prepared when extreme weather is forecast.
