His baby was snatched by the family dog.
Now, following an amazing recovery the father of little A.J. has written a book about the Kentucky family's journey.
Michael Smith of Nicholasville has authored a book called "Could It Happen To You".
It’s baby A.J.'s story of being taken from his crib by the family dog Dakota.
A.J. was just three days old when his family noticed he was no longer in his crib.
He was later found in the woods.
He was carried off by Dakota, a wolf hybrid.
A.J. suffered a collapsed lung, broken ribs and a fractured skull.
He is now recovered and the dog was placed in a new home.
The book will be out in May.
