The Dog Named Miracle

Crammed into a lorry with hundreds of other dogs, Miracle’s future looked bleak. Matted and diseased, he was one of thousands of animals effected by the dog meat trade.

But after dog-lover Amanda Leask spotted a picture of him on Facebook, his fate took a dramatic turn for the better.
