7-year-old’s Elf on the Shelf gets emergency ‘surgery’ after dog attack
ORLANDO, Fla. – Staff members at a Florida hospital raced to save a tiny patient – and a little girl's Christmas – after the family dog attacked her Elf on the Shelf. Orlando mother Jenn Thelen said she woke up to the screams of her 7-year-old daughter Aubrie after the family's German shepherd got ahold of the doll, whose name is Sam, according to a Facebook post Wednesday from the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.
