Lilly, the five-legged puppy at the center of a tug of war this week between a Charlotte, N.C., dog-lover and a Coney Island, N.Y., sideshow owner, had her extra appendage removed Thursday, PEOPLE Pets has learned.

I love that PEOPLE has a Pets division, actually. Not just like a PETS beat, just a full on branch of PEOPLE is devoted to Pets.

But, really, you cut the damn thing off? It’s not like other dogs are going to make fun of him. I’m not entirely sure what the dog would do with the extra leg, but hey, put him in a room full of dog toys and let him find out. I bet he could come up with something cool.
