In her Instagram stories on Monday, Smith said Indigo was “OK,” but could have a small scar after the attack, per Page Six.
“Yesterday, he bit Indigo in the face, and [Indigo] had to have stitches, and we spent yesterday morning at the emergency room,” the influencer wrote. Smith went on to describe how she adopted the Great Pyrenees breed dog, named Legend, in April 2022. She said they “kind of saved each other.”
“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,” Smith wrote.
Smith said she’s “gone back and forth with that” but ultimately decided her dog “does not deserve that because he is wonderful and could do really great with a family who doesn’t have small children.”
“I know I don’t want him to go to a kill shelter … and shelters are full,” Smith said in justification of her choice not to euthanize. “This will be all over the place, and I’ll also start off by saying I never wanted to bring this to social media, but he deserves better,” she said.
The influencer said she no longer planned to keep Legend in her home. “I’m getting Indigo back home tomorrow, and he has to be gone by then,” she shared in stories.
“He is not aggressive toward adults at all. You can get in his face, and you can do anything, and he’s still such a good dog,” Smith wrote.
Wallen has not publicly commented on the situation. He dated Smith from 2016 until 2019, the outlet noted.
