THE FAMILY of a little girl who suffers from ME were devastated when their brand new Jack Russell puppy, Bolt, went missing last week.
Ten-year-old Paige King, has chronic fatigue syndrome, known as ME, and is too ill to attend school at the moment.
To cheer her up Paige's mum Karla decided to buy her daughter a puppy for her tenth birthday last week.
She found a litter of Jack Russells for sale in the POST and purchased a cute little pup for �180.

But on Saturday May 23 the nine-week-old Jack Russell disappeared as Karla walked between her brother's house in Stanfield Road and her home in Downing Road, Dagenham.
Karla had been visiting her brother with the puppy that night and was returning home at about 12midnight.
Bolt was in her daughter's pram fast asleep, wrapped in a blanket - but when Karla arrived in Downing Road he was gone.
Karla said: "We are all just absolutely devastated. My daughters have been crying for two days.
"He is such a lovely friendly dog and I just hope that someone has found him and that they see this in the POST and call me.
"I am terrified to think what might have happened to him."
Karla and her brother stayed out until 5am on Sunday May 24 looking for Bolt but with no luck.
The family think he was lost somewhere between the two houses in Stanfield Road and Downing Road. Karla walked home via the Heathway.
Bolt is very small and pure white apart from his ears which are light brown.
He has a long tail for his size and green eyes.
Karla said: "To make things worse I was recently the victim of a scam where I thought I was buying a puppy over the internet.
"They took �100 from me but of course I never got it back.
"I just can't afford to buy the girls another puppy."
If you think you might have seen Bolt, the little Jack Russell, or have any information about where he is please contact Karla immediately.
