In November 2012, Shelby Churey was 2 years old when she was sitting on her grandfather's lap and was holding a dog's squeaky toy when the dog suddenly bit her in the face. The family had the PIT BULL put to sleep. The baby had at least 30 stitches and had to have skin grafts. Her parents say they have spent most of the summer indoors to protect her face from the sun and they use a special cream to help minimize the scars.
Her parents say it is very sad that another child has been bitten by a PIT BULL in Palm Beach Gardens recently. Their advice to those parents is.......
TO BE THANKFUL THAT YOUR CHILD IS STILL ALIVE!!!!!
Shelby has just turned 3 years old in September and will eventually need laser surgery. They plan to take her to the Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati to have the laser surgery.
