(Memphis) A Memphis toddler who survived a vicious attack by a neighbor’s pit bull is now home with his family.

Little Angelo Garcia is celebrating his 3rd birthday.

In June, Angelo snuck into his neighbor’s backyard on Carrington while his family was putting away groceries.

His neighbors pit bull, named Cannibal, ripped part of the toddler’s face off.

The attack was so bad, neighbors could see the toddler’s bones.

Angelo’s father says his little boy has had 18 surgeries and is now in speech therapy.

The dog was put down shortly after the attack.

The owners have since moved out of the neighborhood.
