Miraculously, a mutilated dog recovered after a brutal mauling, allegedly by Mexican drug traffickers in 2012. The abused animal's legs were cut off and the hapless dog was thrown in a trash bin and left to die. Luckily, the dog survived the mutilations and is recovering well in a sanctuary for abandoned and abused dogs.
On Jan. 13, the Washington Post shared the bitter-sweet news story about an animal that refused to die and be handicapped by its injuries.
Patricial Ruiz says Pay de Limon, Mexicon for Lemon Pie, is flourishing and appears to be thriving since the horrible incident last year.
The mutilated dog, thanks to a pair of prosthetic front legs, romps around his spacious surroundings just like other abandoned and abused animals.
The bubbly Belgian and shepherd mix can now walk, run and even jump. It certainly does not have the bearings of a dog that was mutilated.
Sanctuary owner Patricia Ruiz says, was fitted with prosthetic front legs last year. The Belgian shepherd mix now walks, jumps and runs.
Ruiz said the charming animal was used by violent Mexican drug dealers as practice for human mutilations.
But thanks to modern medicine and some warm and caring hearts at the sanctuary, the mutilated dog is recovering and is among friends. Hopefully, his new owners love Lemon Pie.
