I sit here looking at the four walls in my lounge, crying my eyes out.

I am a 76-year-old man. I live on my own since my lovely wife died eight years ago.

My dog was my best friend. I’d had him since he was five and we had a good life together.

I have always had a dog and I am so sad without one. I am at the end of my tether.

I am lost and I don’t know what to do any more without a companion like the one I have lost.

I am becoming desperate, please help me.

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry you have lost your companion.

There was huge demand for dogs and puppies through lockdown but equally many people discovered caring for and training a dog was more than they could cope with and are asking for them to be rehomed.

The Dogs Trust is currently matching dogs with new owners, by assessing homes virtually, and delivering dogs with social distancing (see dogstrust.org.uk or 020 7837 0006).
