Puppy Whose Front Legs Were Chopped Off For Chewing Shoes Thrives Under Care Of Rescuers

Cola is barely a year old and was just doing what puppies do. He managed to urge out of his home and went over to a neighbor’s property where he found a pair of shoes and commenced to chew on one among them. that straightforward action would have dire consequences.

“The man who owned the shoes complained to the woman who owns Cola and she or he willingly paid him compensation for the damage caused. Not satisfied with this, the person later entered the lady’s property and attacked Cola, severing both lower legs with a sword,” explains Soi Dog Foundation, an animal rescue in Thailand.

The brutish man also threatened Cola’s owner that he would kill her other dogs if she complained. But she wouldn’t be intimidated and contacted Soi Dog Foundation’s law and suppression unit. Police investigated and therefore the man was prosecuted under the country’s new Animal Welfare Law and received a month in jail.

After Cola’s legs were sliced off, his owner rushed to an emergency vet hospital. He somehow managed to survive the blood loss and infection but he was faraway from out of the woods. That’s when Soi Dog progressed and took Cola to a specialist hospital.

He pulled through again and was soon getting around during a wheel cart. Given the circumstances, Cola’s owner didn't feel that he would be safe to return home and was grateful when Soi Dog offered to require Cola to their shelter in Phuket.

The rescue shared some heartwarming videos of Cola’s recovery, which show how quickly he picked up using his new prosthetics.

When they placed on his new legs, he eagerly gives them many kisses.

Now a year old, Cola is walking up stairs and enjoying time together with his rescuers also as time on the beach!

Not only is Cola walking on his own again, Cola also met Soi Dog’s co-founder Gill Dalley and therefore the two made a moment connection.

Gill knew exactly what Cola goes through, having lost both her legs to septicemia 12 years ago. She got the intense septicemia when she was trying to rescue a stray dog. Cola and Gill’s friendship has blossomed into a stronger bond, so strong that Gill has adopted him!
