Can i use spackling to repair this door?

Unfortunately our puppy did not take too kindly to being put in the bathroom for a quick 10 minutes while I dropped my girlfriend off at work. I started using spackling to do the repair by filling in the missing chunk already, but just wondering if this was the right fix or not? Will the spackling even work?... show more Unfortunately our puppy did not take too kindly to being put in the bathroom for a quick 10 minutes while I dropped my girlfriend off at work.
