A 20-year-old from Corby has published a book she hopes will give a boost to animal charities.
Keisha Keenleyside, 20, of Plumpton Court, has self published Memoirs of a Fighting Dog, a tale of a pit bull terrier.
The paperback, which costs £4, is now available on Amazon and Createspace.com.
The book is the story of the animals’ life, told from its perspective, and the tale follows it from being a puppy through its time with five owners who train it to fight.
Keisha, a former pupil of Pope John School, Corby, said: “I researched dog fighting for a GCSE art project and I was appalled at what I discovered.
“It’s cruel and abusive and it’s not the fault of dogs, it’s the owners who are to blame.
“As well as writing the book, I designed the cover and any money I make from royalties I will be giving to WSPA, which works worldwide to protect animals from cruelty, and other animal charities.
“I have already started on my next book.”
