The son of a CBS San Francisco news anchor was hospitalized after he was attacked by a herding dog belonging to a family friend.
Veronica De La Cruz shared details about the heart-stopping incident in a Monday Facebook post which appears to have since been removed from her page.
De La Cruz revealed her four-year-old son Hartley was forced to undergo surgery immediately after for his injuries.

The breeding dog is typically ’50 to 95 pounds’ and ’20 to 26 inches at the shoulder,’ vetstreet.com reports.
While Hartley is currently resting and recovering, De La Cruz thanked her followers for their uplifting words of encouragement during the family’s trying time.
