6-year-old expected to fully recover from dog attack

VAN, TX (KLTV) - VAN, TX (KLTV) - The East Texas 6-year-old who was attacked by a dog on Wednesday is expected to make a full recovery.

Authorities say Morgan Freeman, 6, of Van was playing with a friend in her back yard when she climbed a fence and was attacked by the dog.

The St. Bernard-Bernese mix was pulled off the child, and then shot and killed.

Morgan's family says she suffered a bite under her left arm, puncture wounds on her back, and her left leg was so injured that she had to have surgery.
