Reno, NV (KRNV & MyNews4.com)-- A stray puppy brought to the Nevada Humane Society with two broken legs is healing after multiple orthopedic surgeries, now the Humane Society is seeking the publics help.

According to an NHS spokesperson, a good samaritan found the three month old Miniature Pinscher Chihuahua mix and brought him straight to the Humane Society earlier this week.

J'Neal Hachquet says, "He is such a sweet little guy he just acts like any other puppy right now he wants to play, acts like his legs aren't even broken."

Veterinary staff believe Stover was hit by a car because both of his right legs are broken, but Hachquet says he's expected to make a full recovery.

Unfortunately, Stover's new lease on life doesn't come without a price, he had to undergo multiple orthopedic surgeries to save his legs. After all is said and done the surgeries will exceed $3,000.

Hachquet says, "Surgeries to this extent are very expensive and really strain the shelter's resources.

For cases like this the humane society has a special resource called Emily's Fund for Injured Pets. Donations are accepted year round to ensure that every animal gets a shot at a normal life.

It will be several weeks before Stover's casts are removed and he is up for adoption, but once he is, there will be no stopping him.

If you are interested in helping Stover, you can contact the Nevada Humane Society at 775-856-2000 and donate directly to Emily's Fund for Injured Pets.
