Eddie, a gorgeous little tan mixed-breed, now works as a "Dr. Dog" in Hong Kong, showing all that meet him (as he says) "how wonderful we dogs are". But he wasn't always so lucky – in fact, he was rescued by Jill from the horrendous Hua Nam live animal market in Guangzhou, while waiting slaughter for the table. This 16 minute video, narrated by Eddie, poses the question: "Dr. Eddie: Friend....or Food?".....though of course, the answer is obvious!
We are extremely grateful to director Angie Chen, who came up with the wonderfully unique idea of having Eddie tell his own story! Angie also pulled together camera crews, animators and editors to assist in the production.
The film is available in English, Mandarin and Cantonese and since its production, we have distributed over 100,000 copies across China. Many thanks to wonderful dog lovers for lending us their voices – Grant Thatcher for Eddie in English; Hong Kong celebrity and comedian Jerry Lam for Eddie in Cantonese; and superstar singer and actor Richie Jen for the Mandarin voiceover.
