A dog whose front legs were chopped off by drug dealers can finally play again after he was given false limbs.

''Pay de Limon (Lemon Pie) had the misfortune of running into an organised crime group and they used him to practice cutting off each one of his paws, like they do when they cut fingers off human beings that have been kidnapped,'' Patricia Ruiz of Mexico's Milagros Caninons (Canine Miracles), said.

Pay de Limon was found bleeding in a dumpster by residents in the Mexico City suburb of Fresnillo and they took him to Milagros Caninons.

Due to a lack of facilities in Mexico, a US company created the prosthetic legs after the Mexican foundation raised over US$6000 (NZ$7515).

Pay de Limon has been practising using its new legs and is said to be comfortable with them now.
