LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Abandoned and abused, but Thursday he was a guest of honor at a Louisville artist's reception.

In July, the Arrow Fund rescued Frodo, who was found tied to a post and severely wounded.

Frodo had one of his back legs amputated, and has since fully recovered from his injuries.

Thursday evening, Louisville artist Connie Sandusky held a reception to display seven of her original paintings depicting Frodo's abuse and recovery at Spetz Custom Framing & Gallery on Lime Kiln Lane.

"It's told from his perspective -- what I imagine he felt regarding abandonment and abuse and pain," Sandusky said.

Sandusky donated the paintings to the Arrow Fund to raise awareness.

The paintings will be on display at the Spetz gallery until January 15th.
