Please help, can I save this bonsai?

Strue21February 17, 2013

My boyfriend got this bonsai tree about 2 months ago. It's 5 years old, but I don't know what species it is. I know that he bought it from a gentleman that travelled to New Mexico from California.

The tree had been doing pretty well until about 2 weeks ago. He put it outside to get some sun and our dog got ahold of it... She got it out of the pot and chewed on it a little, but it didn't look that bad.

It is still looking pretty green so I'm hoping its not a lost cause.

Anyone have tips or advice to make sure it doesn't die? The green is a little crunchy, I just hope it is not to late.

Thank you, I appreciate any and all advice!

This is a juniper and they are one of the hardiest plants to use for bonsai.

Just clean it up and cut off any broken branches. Don't feed it until you see new growth. Again, your little bonsai will be fine.
