Dog ate my fern sprout

This morning my dog ate my sprouting fern. I found the roots and stem still intact so I put it back in the soil and watered it. The fern no longer has any of its leaves. Will it survive? What else can I do? Erin

Your Fern will likely recover with a bit of time.
You can add some small fencing to protect the area until the Ferns are larger.
I use the inexpensive wire sections from the dollar store to protect the slower growing spring plants from my dogs! I know where to stay out of but they don't know where the plants are!
