Officers say a 12-year-old and a 17-year-old allowed their dogs to attack Buddy. Both suspects surrendered to police.
“Initially, we were very cautiously optimistic that he would make a recovery but now we can say that he is in stable condition and just doing so great. Who would have thought?” said Gillian Kocher with the PSPCA.
Cards and donations have been pouring in for Buddy, who had been living outside at the time of the attack.
He will be discharged to a foster home.
