A 6-year-old Wyoming boy received about 90 stitches after a dog chewed up his face as he saved his little sister from the aggressive animal last Thursday, according to a viral Instagram post.

Bridger Walker of Cheyenne, Wyo., was resting at home after the rescue, according to the post by Nikki Walker.

Nikki Walker said on social media that she is the boy’s aunt and wanted to bring attention to his heroism.

“He’s in great spirits, and his awesome personality is intact,” Walker wrote. “He can’t smile too widely yet, but he was grinning as I read some of your comments to him.”

Images on Instagram showed Bridger’s faced bloated and reddened.

The post pulled in more than 900,000 likes by Wednesday.

A series of celebrities chimed in with messages to the boy.

Actor Mark Ruffalo commented: “People who put the well beings of others in front of themselves are the most heroic and thoughtful people I know.”
