A 6-year-old Nashville girl who was badly bitten by her family's dog is finally home from the hospital.

Three weeks ago, Madison Mason and her mom were outside playing with their German shepherd when he grabbed her hair, ripping two large pieces out of the back of her head.

Doctors told the family she'll be 11 years old by the time her head fully heals.

Madison starts first grade in the fall, and her class will go through a special program to help them understand what happened. She has already been through pet therapy to keep her from fearing dogs.
