THAILAND — Cola is back on all fours.

The dog was only 9 months old when a man with a sword chopped his front legs off as punishment for chewing a pair of shoes, Reuters reports.

The incident was reported by a neighbor to Asia’s largest animal group, Soi Dog Foundation, who helped nurse Cola back to health.

In a Facebook video that has since gone viral, the dog is rewarded his new legs.

Once they’re on, he wags his tail, barks, licks the camera and jumps around in excitement.

Since July 26, the video has more than 148,000 shares and 127,247 likes.
