(KMOV) -- News 4 has an update on a seven-year-old girl who was attacked by a neighbor's dog.
Lexi Middleton is home from the hospital after she was attacked by a her neighbor's dog. The attack happened on February 5th in Cuba, Missouri. On February 8th, the dog’s owner found the animal shot to death. No criminal charges have been filed against the neighbor.
She lost some teeth in the attack and her cheek bone was shattered. She also had puncture wounds in her neck. She has undergone two surgeries, but doctors say she may need many more to repair all the damage. For now, she is doing her best and recovering at home.
Her family held a fundraiser Friday night to help pay for the hospital bills. If you would like to help the Lexi, a fund has been set up to help with her medical expenses. Anyone interested in donating to the fund can visit the Southern Commercial Bank at 7201 South Broadway or call the bank at 314-481-6800.
