Doctors are hopeful about the full recovery of a toddler attacked by a pit bull in North Carolina. The little boy was forced to undergo emergency surgery following the attack, but is recovering nicely with family and friends. Police received a frantic phone call from a residence in Asheville last week regarding a brutal dog attack. The family dog, which has been described as a pit bull mix, apparently pounced on a 10-month-old boy for no reason.
His grandmother was watching him at the time and told police that the attack came out of nowhere. The toddler reportedly sustained injuries all over his body, but most of the dog bites were to his head. A neighbor told police that the dog had never acted aggressively in the past and the incident seemed to come as a shock to all those involved.
