Kim Zolciak didn't want her son's dog attack to influence his relationship with animals.
The Don't Be Tardy star took to Instagram on Friday to share a sweet throwback snap of her 5-year-old son, Kash, cuddling with puppies shortly after undergoing emergency surgery for a dog bite.
"? Kroy and I felt it was super important to continue to encourage Kash to be around animals," Zolciak wrote. "Kash is an absolute animal lover and I didnt/don't want him to fear animals after all he has been through."
"The 2nd day he was in the hospital their [sic] was a service dog visiting all the children and I asked Kash if he wanted to see the dog, He screeched 'Yes' and was all snuggled up to the dog in less than a minute as if nothing ever happened!" she continued. "Anyhow I wanted to thank @bosleys.place for bringing all your precious sweet (adoptable) puppies over and sharing them with us. ??."
"Guess being an animal lover runs in the family ?? this is a @bosleys.place puppy who I fell in love with ?," the mother of six captioned a pic of her husband, Kroy Biermann, holding another puppy.
Zolciak opened up about Kash's injuries during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen earlier this month.
