I bought a 5 foot tall Hass Avacado Tree, planted it in my backyard, and a few days later my Labrador dog tore off all the branches and leaves from the bottom 2/3 of the tree. My question is, should I buy a new tree or can I just leave the tree as is and install a wire fence around the tree to protect the tree from my dog in the future, and wait for the branches and leaves to grow again. Will it be stunted and not as big because the dog tore off all the branches and leaves? If the answer is yes I am considering buying a brand new avocado tree and replanting it. What are your thoughts on this? Should I just throw away this tree and get a new one?
