Planting a new Grape Vine

I just planted two new Somerset Grape vines. I got them from the local Walmart. They both had a couple nice green leaves on the pruned main vine trunk. Right after I planted them, my dog decided to bite off the few green shoots off one of the vines. Is this likely a lost cause and should I go out and buy a new one to replace it or will it likely send out some new buds after it gets acclimated to it's new location? I don't want to wait too awful long only to find out it is dead.
I just need to know what to expect.

It is possible the roots could still grow and new shoots could appear, but you will have to do something to keep your dog from killing the vines either way.

Thank you Terry. It still is just a stick in the ground at this point. i hope it comes back. We are expecting some nice sunny weather this week and if it doesn't show something soon, I may have to replace it. Yah, the damn dog thinks everything is a toy.
