5-Legged Pup Rescued From Coney Island Freak Show Kind

Southerner pays $4K to save puppy from "Freaks of Nature" show

A five-legged puppy was saved from life in a Coney Island freak show thanks to a kindhearted Southerner who paid $4,000 for the pooch.

Allyson Siegel, 45, of Charlotte, N.C., outbid a Brooklyn freak show operator to buy the pup because she couldn't bear the thought of the Chihuahua-terrier mix ending up at the sideshow that featured disfigured animals, the Charlotte Observer reported.

Siegel changed the puppy's name from Precious to Lilly and plans to spend an additional $2,000 to have the extra appendage removed. Surgery is set in two weeks.The fifth leg, which trips Lilly as she tries to walk, hangs limply between the puppy's two back legs.

"I called Calvin and I said, 'I understand this is about money,' and I just said, 'How much?'" Siegel told the New York Daily News.

"She's beautiful, she's not a freak, she's a normal little puppy dog and she should be just like all the others."
