Stover, a stray puppy, was brought to Nevada Humane Society through Washoe County Regional Animal Services with a rare injury. The three-month-old miniature pinscher/chihuahua mix was found by a good Samaritan with both right legs broken, leading veterinary staff to believe Stover was hit by a car.
Nevada Humane Society is now asking the community for monetary support to help with Stover's extensive medical treatment. Stover required multiple orthopedic surgeries to save his legs. The surgeries were performed in the Nevada Humane Society Clinic by Dr. Jennifer Jackson and Dr. Randy Genis.
"Even with two broken legs, Stover behaves like any other puppy. He's not letting his injuries stop him," said Art Westbrook, Dog Care Manager at Nevada Humane Society. "He's a sweet little guy with a playful personality. And with our help, Stover is expected to go on to live a happy, healthy life with a new family. He should be ready for adoption after several weeks of care."
Nevada Humane Society is currently seeking donations toward Stover's care. The cost of his medical treatment will exceed $3,000, putting a tremendous strain on shelter resources. Nevada Humane Society is asking that animal lovers contribute to Stover's needs by making a donation to the shelter specifically for his care.
