ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A little boy mauled by a pit bull at a relative's home in Schley County Monday is now home in Americus.

4 year-old Jasper Poole was released from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital late Thursday afternoon after getting a blood transfusion Wednesday.

He still can't walk and will need more surgery to remove 300 stitches in his leg, but his parents say he's doing well.

They say they're grateful for the community's prayers and support.
