Country music star Morgan Wallen’s two-year-old son Indigo was quickly rushed to the hospital Sunday after suffering a dog bite on his face.

According to Fox News, the country singer’s young son was bit Sunday by Wallen’s ex-fiancée KT Smith’s dog Legend. Wallen and Smith’s son received stitches in the hospital immediately following the incident. According to Page Six, Smith shared that Indigo was “OK” but could have a small scar on his face as a result of the dog bite.

On Monday, Smith posted videos on her Instagram story, explaining the incident and asking her followers for advice.

“Yesterday, he bit Indigo in the face and [Indigo] had to have stitches … we spent yesterday morning at the emergency room,” she said.

Smith explained that her dog Legend, a Great Pyrenees, was adopted last year. She also shared a video on Instagram asking her fans for advice on what to do with her dog after the biting incident besides euthanizing Legend.

“Since then, we have been looking for options and I just couldn’t bring myself to what everyone else says and what you’re supposed to do, apparently … what the world tells you to do is to put the dog down because they are aggressive,” she said.

According to the Daily Wire, Smith said she considered euthanizing Legend, but determined that the dog, “does not deserve that.” Smith suggested that Legend could “do really great” with a family that did not have young children.

“I know I don’t want him to go to a kill shelter,” she said, “and shelters are full.”

Hours after posting videos on Instagram, Smith shared an update regarding Legend, explaining that a family had agreed to adopt the dog.

“We just dropped legend off with the sweetest family where he will be living out his full potential and best life on a farm,” she said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better family for him to be loved on by, and they’re East Tennesseans, so we can visit any time we need to.”
