A dog which was left with a broken spine and rotting insides is enjoying a new lease of life after being rescued from the Chinese meat market.

Toy poodle Henry was languishing in a government shelter in Shanghai with a severed spine after he was bitten by another dog.

He had no tail, was unable to walk and had open wounds through to the bone when he was saved by retired civil servant Sharon Warnock, who paid £600 to bring Henry back to her home in Northern Ireland.



Affectionately nicknamed 'Wee Wheels', Henry has lived with Ms Warnock, 54, for a year.

He has now amassed more than 1,500 Instagram followers and enjoys tearing along the beach in County Armagh on his specially-made 'doggie wheels'.

He is also the official team mascot for the Ulster Superbike Championship, for which Ms Warnock volunteers, and goes on regular school visits.

Ms Warnock said: 'I travelled around China 13 years ago and caught glimpses of the dog meat trade, which people think is a one-off event with the Yulin Festival, but which is an everyday occurrence, so I started following the group.

'Dog meat is seen as a luxury in China, so people will pay more for it than for beef or chicken and the way they make the meat more tender is by effectively torturing the dogs. It's barbaric and we have to help stop it.
