IIn Wanganui, New Zealand, a five-month old puppy was hit by a car. He had a broken leg that had to be pinned together using surgery. The cost of this surgery would have been $2,500 NZ dollars ($1,730 US). As it turned out the family could not afford the surgery because they were on welfare. The vet told the family that the dog would have to be euthanized because the young dog was in agony.

Enough money has been amassed so the surgery could be paid for. The Stewart family is very grateful for the public's generosity and Bronson plans on working to pay back those donations by mowing lawns and tending gardens. Bronson brought Buck back to the hospital yesterday and promised not to take him again.
