A couple of years ago, Christine and Steve Arnott, a couple from Scotland, were scrolling through a website which showed adoptable dogs from China’s meat trade.
They came upon Deena’s profile: A little Husky girl who had been found in the streets with a broken leg. It was assumed that she had jumped out of a truck to escape her fate in the meat trade.

They first started sending £150 a month to the charity in charge of Deena to help them care for her. About a year later, Christine got a bonus at work. The couple had planned to renovate their kitchen, but instead, they decided to spend the money on a flight to the UK for Deena.
In April 2021, Deena was finally able to take a flight from China to the UK. When Christine laid eyes on her for the very first time, she broke down into tears!
Deena was a little shy at first, but settled in quickly. Now she’s as happy as can be! Thanks to this wonderful couple, her life changed for the better. She’s one lucky dog!
