Alachua County grandmother, Mary Smith, is recovering after a horrific dog attack that left her without her right leg. Smith, who is in her late 70s, was walking her own dog in her neighborhood when she was attacked by a neighbor’s dog.
The attack was so severe that Smith had to be rushed to the hospital, where doctors had to amputate her right leg. Smith has since been released from the hospital and is now recovering at home.
Smith’s family has been by her side throughout the entire ordeal, providing her with emotional and physical support. Smith’s daughter, who lives in the same neighborhood, has been helping her mother with her recovery.
“My mom is a strong woman and she’s been through a lot,” said Smith’s daughter. “She’s been through a lot of pain and she’s still going strong.”
Smith’s family has also set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the costs of her medical bills and other expenses related to her recovery. The page has already raised over $10,000 and the family is hoping to raise even more.
Smith’s family is also hoping to raise awareness about the importance of responsible pet ownership. They are urging all pet owners to make sure their pets are properly trained and supervised at all times.
Smith’s story is a reminder of the importance of being aware of your surroundings and taking precautions when walking your dog. Smith’s family is hoping that her story will help prevent similar tragedies from happening in the future.
