A 2-year-old boy underwent an hours-long surgery this week in Portland after he was brutally injured by a pit bull.

Jeremiah Frohlich was attacked by the dog near his Medford home. He suffered a broken arm, and his scalp was torn off. He was rushed by a medical helicopter to Portland, where he underwent a 16-hour-long surgery to repair his scalp.

"Our biggest concern is, when we come home, we want to make sure that Jeremiah is being well cared for. We cannot go back to where we were staying where he was attacked by the dog. It's not a good environment," his mother said.

The family wants him to recover in Medford.
