Mercy - 8 x 10 Oil on canvas panel

Commission Painting

Mercy - A pit bull mix was a rescue dog. Mercy was a 10 month-old puppy. The 22-year-old owner stabbed his dog, poured an accelerant on her stomach and set her on fire because she wouldn't mate. She lived for 10 days and showed some improvement. Her condition deteriorated and she was given a plasma transfusion, but shortly afterward, her heart--weakened by burns over 60% of her body, stopped beating. Her abuser was captured and is serving 4 years in prison.
