Jackie the Jack Russell Terrier Needs Your Help

This is not a happy story but I don't know what to do. I have a much loved dog called Jackie who has had a severe anxiety problem for more than 12 months since her mate Mollie became ill and had to be put to sleep.
She starts shaking when we go out and destroyed blinds, curtains, chewed on the window frames,trying to get out. Finally she chewed through a lattice fence and ran away to my daughter's house where we let her stay and she seemed to be settled with another dog and more company to keep her happy.
However now she's trying to dig her way out of her house and has ripped her curtains,so things are desperate. I have photos of damage that you wouldn't believe. I've had her on medication and even bought a special jacket but nothing worked. Only strong sedation and that's a rotten way to live. Unfortunately I have to work so I'm appealing to anyone who might be able to take on a loving but needy dog who needs full time love. I've had her for 12 years and would happily pay all expenses for the rest of her life.
The only alternative left is euthanasia which would be horrendous. Please!! Is there any help out there.
