A dog with an artistic flair has put her talents to good use to raise money for a disability charity.

Ruby's painting - a white canvas filled with blue streaks - is to be sold for Dog Assistance in Disability (Dog A.I.D.).

The charity helps people with disabilities train their pet dog to carry out tasks to help them.

Ruby lives in Surbiton with Megan, her 19-year-old owner, and since a head injury in 2011 Megan has been training Ruby to become an assistant.

As well as being a dab hand/paw with a pot of paint, Ruby primarily helps Megan with day to day tasks.

She paints by clamping brushes in her mouth and moving them across the canvas.

Sandra Fraser Dog A.I.D. chair said: "Seeing Ruby actually paint a picture is very impressive. Megan is an inspirational girl who does not let her condition affect her life.

"Ruby already does sterling work helping Megan as a pets as therapy volunteer, yet I hope we will be able to help her become an assistance dog in the future."
