Sweet Lemon Pie, a big, beautiful, fun-loving dog, ran into some bad, bad people in Mexico. The bad people were members of an organized crime ring. They practiced cutting off his front feet like they do when they cut off fingers of the people they kidnap. The two stumps Lemon Pie was left with made it difficult for him to walk.
Lemon Pie was rescued and taken to Canine Miracles, a shelter in Mexico founded by Patricia Cruz. With the help of some new technology developed in the United States, and after raising a large amount of money, Lemon Pie received two new front legs that were designed specifically for him, from molds of his front legs.
Although he was a bit shaky on his new legs at first, Lemon Pie is now able to run and play, something he probably never thought he’d be able to do again. At a cost of $8,000 per leg, Lemon Pie is now one of the luckiest dogs around!
