A dog which was found with its legs hacked off and whimpering by the roadside in China has been flown halfway around the world to start a new life on wheels in the UK.
The helpless pooch, named Braveheart, was slowly bleeding to death when rescuers discovered her near a slaughterhouse in Zhejiang province.
It's thought her front two paws had been sawn off by a butcher as part of China's dog meat trade.
Footage of the moment rescuers came to her aid shows the two-year-old mixed breed crying out in pain while covered in blood.
But just a few months later, Braveheart has been given a new lease of life after being flown to the UK for pioneering treatment.
