However, after fans started showing their concern, the mother of four revealed the story behind the incident. She shared a video and explained the incident while sobbing as she said, “Our dog, Ruger, who is like one, attacked Annabella.”

Given the fact that the incident happened during the COVID-19 pandemic, Jennifer had to be alone by her daughter’s side. As reported by The Sun, she shared pictures of Annabella’s injuries and talked about the traumatizing experience.

The 28-year-old wrote, “The hurt in this mama’s heart is extreme. As moms, we immediately start to blame ourselves. We think of the what-ifs. I close my eyes to sleep, I hear the growl-the scream, I open my eyes, and my daughter’s face is an open wound.”

“The dog I loved and trusted did this. I wasn’t able to say goodbye to him. But it could have been worse… I could be saying goodbye to my baby & I’m not,” She concluded.
