Prosthetic legs allow dog to walk again after losing limbs in sword attack

Awww look at how happy he is

A dog whose front legs were hacked off in a sword attack in Thailand is able to walk again, after being fitted with prosthetic limbs.

Cola the dog was attacked by a neighbour for chewing a pair of shoes when he was about nine months old, according to Thai animal shelter Soi Dog Foundation.

He was taken to a specialist clinic in Bangkok and Soi Dog covered his medical costs. Cola’s owner then surrendered him to the shelter due to fears that he would be in danger at home.

Soi Dog co-founder Gill – who herself uses prosthetics after losing both legs in 2004 – then collected Cola, and he has since been given custom-made prosthetics.

I can understand the owner giving him up for his own safety. Do hope he will be ok with Gill who has empathy with him. How cruel can some people be. Love him hope you will be ok from now on.
