Lili Reinhart’s Dog Is Recovering After Scary Attack: ‘The Most Terrifying Thing’
Lili Reinhart‘s sweet pup is on the mend after being “attacked” by another dog!
On Friday, the Riverdale star choked back tears as she explained via Instagram Stories that her recently rescued dog Milo had been attacked:
“This is weird for me and I’m not exactly sure why I’m doing it, but I guess for all the people out that that care about my little dog Milo. I was taking him out today to get some exercise. I had a mask and gloves on so don’t start with me about that. He was attacked by another dog.”
“It was pretty bad. I had to rush him to the hospital, and he’s there now getting surgery.”
After suffering a “pretty deep wound” on his neck, Reinhart clued fans in on Saturday morning with an encouraging update:
“Thank you so much to everyone who reached out to me about Milo. It was an outpouring of love and that was so incredibly sweet and kind. Thank you. He’s OK, he’s home with me. He had surgery. He had a big wound on his head, so part of his head is shaved and he has a little puncture wound here as well that’s stitched up. He’s OK. He’s a little timid. He’s on paid meds to help because you can tell he’s quite uncomfortable with the stitches.”
We can’t even imagine how scary this was for Lili and Milo!!
“I can honestly say it was the most terrifying thing I’ve ever experienced. I keep having flashbacks on that entire situation and how traumatizing it was for him and me. I mean I just, I hope that he heals really well and he’s not terrified of other dogs from now on—we’re probably gonna have to work on that.”
While the experience was no doubt terrifying for the dog momma and her pup, the 23-year-old is grateful to her fans for their well wishes:
“But truly thank you to everyone who reached out about his well being. He’s doing surprisingly well and being a little extra cuddly right now which is very sweet, but I am watching his every move and taking good care of him.”
ICYMI, Milo is a new addition to Lili’s life! She just adopted him in February from Furever Freed Dog Rescue outside Vancouver, where she normally lives during Riverdale filming. Ch-ch-check out their sweet first photo together (below):
It’s clear he has had a huge impact on her life already! Just look at what she said after some time in self-quarantine about their bond:
Get well soon, Milo!!
