Kyle Dyer Discusses Dog BitePublished April 3, 2012
Dyer had been spending the last couple months recovering from two surgeries she had underwent to repair her face from the wounds left by Max, an 85-pound Argentine mastiff. The bite had nearly severed Dyer’s lips, which were saved only by the two reconstructive facial surgeries she had done.
Last month on TODAY, Dyer discussed both her injuries and those surgeries with Ann Curry. Dyer revealed that she required 90 stitches after the procedures. Additionally, she said she’s been left with a V-shaped scar on the top of her mouth. All in all though, the surgeries were a success.
Despite her injuries, Dyer holds no grudge against Max, and has not and does not plan on taking any legal action against his family. In fact, Dyer admitted she may have made a mistake handling Max, telling Curry that maybe she was “too close; maybe [Max] was unsettled.”
A true animal lover, Dyer seems to recognize that the entire ordeal really was an accident, albeit an avoidable one.
