STAMFORD - The Stamford community is coming together to help a dog after it was struck by a car last month. 

The owner of the 12-pound Yorkie mix had to give him up because he was unable to care for him. Members of the community are now trying to raise the money through an online fundraiser on the website GoFundMe. 

The dog, named Bruno, was brought to Cornell University Veterinary Specialists for surgery. The medical expenses for the dog amount to more than $12,000. 

"Any additional moneys past his bill, we are going to be donating to Cornell so they can help more people," said Carol Truffini, of Georgetown Veterinary Hospital.
