The distraught owner of a missing beagle is pulling out all stops to get her beloved pet home for its first birthday.
Melissa Taylor is doing everything she can think of to find Bee, a female tri-coloured beagle.
She has called local vets, the SPCA, nearby schools, organising help to deliver posters to homes, placed ads in local papers and on radio stations, posted messages on online forums and Facebook pages and asked road workers working nearby to keep an eye out.
Miss Taylor left her pup with a foster family while she and her partner travelled to the United States. Bee's foster family visited a kiwifruit orchard on State Highway 2 near Athenree on January 31.
