The non-profit group Austin Pets Alive says the generosity of KVUE viewers brought in more than $4,000 for a dog in need of knee surgery.
Doctors say X-rays show that Monty's legs were injured by blunt force trauma, but not likely from a car accident. Both of his hind legs were broken, one in 6-places. The injuries are consistent with being hit with a baseball bat.
Monty is scheduled for surgery either Friday or Monday and is expected to make a full recovery.
