Popular pedigree puppy Saffron went missing at 12.15pm on Wednesday from her home at Calf Lane.
Frantic owner Jane Glennie believes her beloved pet could have been stolen.
She has put up posters and offered a reward for the 13-month dog's safe return.
She said: "Everyone in Campden knows her and adores her.
"They're all out looking for her. She goes for walk through town every day with my Labrador Bess and rescue greyhound Wendy.
"And she's a real sight as she wears a red harness.
"She's a fabulous, lovely little friendly animal - but perhaps a bit too friendly as anyone could have picked her up and put her in a car.
"We started to call her for her afternoon walk and she'd vanished.
"Possibly someone left the door open and she went into the street."
Saffron is a faun Pug, wearing a red harness with a name and address tag.
She is also micro-chipped.
Anyone with information should contact Mrs Glennie, 01386 840201.

We saw these at a recent tradeshow and as fans of the original Buff (for humans) we love them! Not just a snazzy dog bandana, the buff is made of wicking material that is wind-resistant, breathable and wicks moisture. When washed, the Buff is colourfast, dries in minutes, and retains its elasticity. A reflective strip ensures your dog can be spotted easily in darker evenings.
Here's a sneak peek

Sometimes though, things don't always run smoothly. Some times the odd technical glitch pops up, sometimes it's third party intervention whether it's a royal mail strike, a supplier not delivering on time or even a power cut. We try to deal with these issues as best we can, in order to still deliver great customer service.
We always remember that it's a living human being on the end of the phone or receiving an email, in the same way that we, ourselves are not robots.

I'm starting a new Bigup feature on the Jack Paws blog, "bigging up" favourite pet related (even in the loosest of terms) products.
Today, I want to talk about Wildberry Incense sticks. Not your average, over powering incense from down the local hippy stall, but really good quality incense which actually smell like they say on the tin when you burn them!
With 2 house cats and a small windy dog, and a dislike for chemical overload from aerosols and plugins, I've been using oil burners and incense sticks for a few years now. I originally came across Wildberry Incense whilst on holiday in Looe in Cornwall. I dislike the heady smell of many incense sticks, and was wowed by the rather delicous scents of the Wildberry range.
I think there's something like 75 fragrances to choose from, although Mysteriosa and Fairy Dust are particular favourites of mine. While I'd love to travel down to Looe everytime I run out, sadly that's just not practical, so I've found Crafty Jungle sell them at a very reasonable price. And as scratch and sniff monitors just aren't available yet, you can by packs of mini sticks to find the scents you like!

A very normal looking grooming comb which makes you wonder what's so special!
What do you do with it?
We bought a small one to try out on our pug, one long haired cat and our other semi-long haired cat. You have to make sure there are no knots or tangles in your pet's coat (it's not for detangling), then lightly start grooming in short strokes toward the tail.
Lot's of fur flying around the room, sticking to everything so we highly recommend you use it somewhere without carpets or upholstery and wear old or easily defluffed clothing!
Our three absolutely loved being groomed with it (which is really something as our semi-long hair hates being groomed.
We've seen a huge reduction in "dust bunnies" and hair on the carpet. Neither of our cats have coughed up a furball since we started using it, plus all their coats are looking really glossy and sleek.
How often should you use it?
It's recommended to use 1-2 times a week depending on your pets shedding abilities.
Where can I buy one?
