Anne, 46, of Hasland, said: "A light Blue Astra came flying down the road, mounted the kerb and hit Rosie, killing her, then the driver sped off.

"I was at work at the time and when I found out what had happened I was absolutely mortified.

"Rosie was such a lovely dog, always very friendly and happy.

"I really miss her and I hope the person who did this is found and brought to justice."
