Mom of Ryder Wells Has a Message to Those Calling Her Son a 'Monster' on the Playground

Ryder Wells miraculously survived a horrendous dog attack at just 22 months old. But half of his face was left disfigured as a result, causing some insensitive people to call him a monster. But here’s what this brave boy’s mom wants everyone to know.

In 2015, Ryder Wells, a boy from North Carolina, survived the unthinkable. While he and his mom were staying at a friend’s house, the friend’s two pet Rottweilers attacked the little boy.
No one knows why the dogs attacked.
“He’d been around the dogs before and they’d been fine,” his mom, Brittany, explained, “so I don’t know what happened.”

But on this particular day, the two canines mauled Ryder Wells, who was 22 months old at the time and had managed to sneak into the backyard through the dog door.

“When we picked him up and rolled him, his face was just gone,” Brittany recalled of the horrifying day.

The dogs’ owner, Brittany’s friend Amber, felt horrible about the tragic incident that happened at her house.

“I blame myself all the time because it was my dog,” Amber says through tea

“The doctors said they would do what they could but we weren’t expecting him to make it,” Brittany said.

Ryder Wells lost his whole right cheek, the bottom of his eyelid, 75 percent of his lip, his teeth were crushed and he suffered a broken arm as well as a punctured lung.

The boy spent 14 hours in surgery as a medical team did all they could to save him. Doctors had to perform a tracheostomy for the punctured lung. They also feared that the dogs had bitten so hard into his skull that he would be paralyzed.

Yet, despite all the damage from the vicious attack, the little boy amazed everyone by surviving.
