A taxi firm has joined the campaign for the safe return of Daisy the dog by offering a "substantial" reward.
Natasha Acres, a director with Streamline Taxis, said: "It must be horrible for Daisy's owners at the moment and we feel for what they are going through. We want to do anything we can to help."
The cocker spaniel went missing, believed dog-napped, from Upper Street in Hollingbourne at around 8.50am on Monday, January 18.
Her owners, 77-year-old Pam and Bill Nash, 80, are desperate to get her back.
Mrs Acres said: "I have elderly parents who also have a dog that they love, and I can imagine how they would feel if their pet was stolen."
Police have issued an image of a white pick-up truck seen in the vicinity when Daisy disappeared. They are appealing for information to identify the truck and its owner.
Sgt Craig Chalmers-Stevens said: "Our investigators have been pursuing a number of lines of inquiry and we are now able to issue a CCTV image that shows a side view of a white truck we would like to trace."
"It has been a week since Daisy was taken and we are urging anybody with information that may help us find her to call our appeal line."
"We would also like to hear from anyone, who has not yet spoken to the police, with CCTV or dashcam footage that shows the truck travelling between Hollingbourne, Bredgar and the Sittingbourne area between 8.30am and 9am on January 18."
Daisy is a rescue dog and has been with the Nash family since last year. She is white and tan.
Mrs Acres said: "Our office68 King Street in Maidstone is open and manned 24 hours a day.
"If the person or people who took Daisy are having second thoughts they can drop her off with us, no questions asked, and we will see she gets home."
