The story was shared by the bravo’s aunt on Instagram. “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me,” Bridger’s aunt quoted him as saying.
“After receiving 90 stitches (give or take) from a skilled plastic surgeon, he’s finally resting at home. We love our brave boy,” she wrote.
“He’s in great spirits, and his awesome personality is intact. He can’t smile too widely yet, but he was grinning as I read some of your comments to him,” she wrote.
Bridgers’s aunt also said the dog’s owners have been kind to the little hero and his family. “We feel no resentment toward them at all, and—if anything—there’s only been an increase of love between our families as a result of this incident,” she wrote.
Chris Evans, a hollywood actor appreciated the kid’s bravery. “I’m going to send you an authentic Captain America Shield'” said the actor.
