With the internet now we see what goes on around the world . the whole world is guilty of human and animal abuse. china is one of the top offenders. The dog meat trade is one that is very disturbing as they believe the more the animal suffers the better the meat is for them. This is one of two paintings I did for a lady called Amanda leask who rescues dogs . this is Braveheart ,found tied to a post in china ready to be butchered for meat. she had had both her front legs hacked to the bone. after her rescue she went on to have them amputated. she now lives in Scotland with Amanda and has just won an award for the most inspirational animal at the Animal Hero Awards.
