STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Buddy the dog continues to recover at Mississippi State University (MSU) after a juvenile intentionally set fire to his face in Tate County several weeks ago.
On Saturday, the Tunica Humane Society shared a new picture of Buddy at the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine.
The Facebook post read, "Our sweet boy ventured out on his own today. Sniffing around the play yard at Mississippi State.
Getting better everyday! God is Faithful"
Bandages continue to cover his entire head except for his nose and mouth.
He recently underwent skin graft surgery. Doctors placed fish skin over his face.
The juvenile who set fire to Buddy also confessed to tying an electrical cord around the dog’s neck.
However, due to the juvenile's age, the child will not face criminal charges.
