BANGKOK, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- An abused dog that lost his front legs in a sword attack was fitted with prosthetics in Thailand and gave enthusiastic approval to his new legs.

A video posted to YouTube by the Soi Dog Foundation shows rescued dog Cola being fitted with his prosthetic legs for the first time at a veterinary specialist clinic in Bangkok.

Cola, whose front legs were hacked off with a sword as punishment for chewing a neighbor's shoes, trots excitedly on his new legs and gives his human helpers copious thanks with his tongue.

The Soi Dog Foundation said Cola also has a new home -- he was adopted by the group's founders.
