An eight-year-old Twin Falls girl is recovering from a dog attack that could have been fatal if her sister didn’t rush to help.

On October 16th, Hailey Wakley was swinging at a family friend’s home and was attacked by two English Bulldogs who dragged her off the swing.

Hailey’s sister, 7-year old Echo, ran and got help when she saw her sister getting attacked, but not before Hailey suffered extensive bites to her legs and back.

After being brought to the hospital, Hailey had to have surgery, and will need physical therapy to use her leg again, as well as skin grafts. 

The dogs involved in the attack have been put down. 

The family is asking for help through a GoFundMe account here.
