The victim from the Walsh County dog attack is out of the hospital and doing much better. Meanwhile the owner of the dogs is behind bars and will undergo a psychological evaluation.

The dogs belonged to 59-year-old Pete Grzeskowiak. As a result of the attack all of Grzeskowiak's dogs were put down and Muñoz has been in and out of the hospital due to his injuries.

On sunday Muñoz was released from the hospital after his wounds were treated, but he returned due to an infection. Saliva from bites infected his wounds causing swelling. After being repeatedly bitten, Muñoz' body is covered with tiny deep wounds and now stitches. Fortunately his infection has been taken care of and he is out of the hospital. He still has to undergo two more rabies shots but he says he's feeling better. Unable to fully walk, his wounds make it hard for him to sleep, and he says he occasionally has flashbacks of the attack. Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild says he's familiar with Grzeskowiak and his dogs and that he's thankful things weren't worse.

Wild: "It's a tragedy what happened to this young boy, but we're very fortunate he isn't dead."

Muñoz says after he's healed up he'll consider taking legal action.
