LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A dog who was found with duct tape around his mouth and wounds all over his body can't tell his own story, but an artist is using her brush to tell his tale and educate others.

Louisville Metro Animal Services discovered the pit bull, named Frodo, in the 2600 block of West Kentucky Street in July.

Frodo required extensive surgery on his mouth and jaw and had to have his rear leg amputated.

Artist Connie Sandusky was inspired by Frodo's story and the people at the Arrow Fund who worked hard to save his life.

Thursday Frodo himself attended an event at the Leslie H. Spetz Custom Picture Framing & Gallery where seven oil paintings created by Sandusky were featured.

All of the paintings feature Frodo and were donated to the Arrow Fund by Sandusky. She hopes the rescue group will use the paintings to educate people about animal abuse.
