STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Buddy’s doctors say his new facial skin is healing nicely.
Mississippi State’s College of Veterinary Medicine is currently caring for Buddy after a juvenile intentionally set fire to the dog’s face in Tate County.
During his skin graft surgery, doctors placed fish skin over the dog’s face.
A specialist examined Buddy’s eyes and believe he’ll be able to see.
Currently, bandages cover his entire face except for his nose and mouth.
According to the Tunica Humane Society's Facebook page, Buddy’s fur is regrowing around his nose.
