Dog Abused By Mexican Drug Gangs Walks Again With Prosthetic Legs
This is Pay de Limon or Lemon Pie and he lives at a dog shelter in Mexico City. Apparently, Lemon Pie was captured by a criminal drug gang and had his front paws cut off.
Witnesses say they'd seen the dog with members of the gang before he was abused. Shelter officials say the gang was practicing for when they cut fingers off people, who've been kidnapped. They say he was found in a garbage can in the city of Fresnillo.
The dog was brought to the shelter, where doctors decided to try fitting him with prosthetic legs. The shelter had to raise several thousand dollars, and get some help from a company in the United States to make the prosthetics, but they got it done.
They cost a whopping $8,000 and were designed in the United States. Workers at the rescue shelter say that Lemon Pie quickly adjusted to the limbs and can wear them for longer periods of time with each passing day.
And now, Lemon Pie is up, walking around and living a more normal life. To watch Lemon Pie get around, check out this video. (Source)
