Does the sentence 'The dragon looks like a dog without its wings' need a comma?

It needs to be rearranged so that we know what the pronoun is referring to.  As written, it is closest to dog, so it seems the dog is missing its wings.  This sentence would be fine:


The dog looks like a dragon without its wings.


But you want to describe what the wingless dragon looks like.


Without its wings, the dragon looks like a dog.
