Pay de Limon (Lemon Pie) was fitted with prosthetic front legs

A dog reportedly mutilated by Mexican drug traffickers is recovering at a sanctuary for abused and abandoned dogs.

Sanctuary owner Patricia Ruiz says Pay de Limon (Lemon Pie), was fitted with prosthetic front legs last year. The Belgian shepherd mix now walks, jumps and runs.

She says the dog was left in a trash can to die after his two fronts legs were cut off and that people who asked her to help Pay de Limon told her that drug traffickers used the dog to practice for mutilating humans.

Pay de Limon is one of 128 abused dogs living at the Milagros Caninos sanctuary. Dogs on wheelchairs, blind, deaf or ill frolic and run around the huge sanctuary in the southern part of Mexico City.
