There have been "no leads, no sightings," Cindy McGrew, Abby's owner, said.
Abby was last seen on Tilghman Island on July 4. She ran away after she was accidentally let outdoors and was spooked by fireworks, McGrew said.
McGrew said it had to be no more than a half-hour before she realized Abby was missing.
"My heart just sank. … Within minutes of us, six of us were out there," she said.
McGrew didn't go home until 2 a.m. And she hasn't given up the hunt since.
She's now offering $3,000 to anyone who can get Abby home safe, no questions asked.
Abby is an 18-month-old Rottweiler who offers comfort to wounded military veterans for McGrew's nonprofit organization Operation Second Chance.
As recently as a week ago, 14 volunteers—people McGrew "didn't even know"—helped comb through the woods of Tilghman Island in search of Abby, but the hunt has expanded even further online.
"Every site you can imagine," McGrew said.
It is believed that Abby was picked up by someone on the island and possibly taken away. McGrew said there was only one road that leads on and off the island.
"She's a little bundle of love and I just want to get her home," McGrew said.
