Jeremy Renner shared a sweet photo of his “protector” dog as he continues his recovery at home over two months on from his serious snowplough accident.

The Marvel star was crushed by a six-tonne snowplough while trying to save his nephew near his home close to the Nevada-California state border in the US.

On Thursday, the actor, 52, posted a snap of his pet sitting on the bed looking out of the window, with the caption: “My little protector. Sweet love Hershey.”

Renner has been focused on his recovery ever since the accident on New Year’s Day but recently featured in the trailer for his new docuseries Rennervations, which was shot before the incident.

The Disney+ series sees him enlists his celebrity pals, including Anthony Mackie, Vanessa Hudgens, Anil Kapoor and Sebastián Yatra, to help repurpose vehicles which can serve communities.

Earlier this month, Renner said he is doing “whatever it takes” to recover from his accident.

At the time, the Hawkeye actor posted a video on his Instagram story of him working on rebuilding the strength of his leg using a stationary exercise bike.

He used his hand to assist with the motion and wrote alongside the video: “Whatever it takes”.

The actor also revealed he is working on his mental recovery too by reading The Book Of Awakening: Having The Life You Want By Being Present In The Life You Have, by Mark Nepo – which is a series of daily reflections.

The actor has kept fans updated with his recovery process so far, previously revealing that he had broken more than 30 bones in the incident.

Earlier this month, his Marvel co-star Evangeline Lilly said she had recently visited the wheelchair-bound actor at his home and that she felt his swift recovery was a “straight-up miracle”.

Lilly told US outlet Access Hollywood: “I walked in his house and got chicken skin, because I was like, ‘Why are you mobile? Why are you mobile? What’s happening?’

“I expected to sit at his bedside and hold his hand while he moaned and groaned in pain and wasn’t able to move. He was wheeling himself around, laughing with his friends. It’s a miracle, a straight-up miracle.

“He’s made of something really tough, that guy. You’ve always been able to see that in him. He is recovering incredibly, and I’m so grateful.”
