ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A 6-year-old boy is recovering after pit bulls mauled him in front of his mother at their Atlanta home Friday night.

The incident happened on Mayland Circle.

The boy sustained several leg and facial injuries.

His mother, Monica Smith describes the harrowing attack.

"I just saw the dog pulling on my baby's leg as he was trying to run from out the yard, that's when I saw the gray dog attack him at that instance," said Smith.

The boy has trouble speaking, eating and swallowing but he's getting stronger.
