We have a crazy dog who has ruined the interior of our front window. From what I can find out on google its a double casement picture window (casement, picture, casement). She's successfully tore off part of the picture window on the bottom. It's the piece that looks like it would be where a screen would fit into IF it were a window that actually opened. From what I can tell there are finishing nail holes in the piece that is the most damaged. I'm wondering if those are in face nails and I can pry that piece out and fashion a new one? The piece behind it is also damaged, but it can either he sanded or wood filled to look ok if that piece can't be taken out as well.

Again, just wondering if removing that piece is possible? I'd like to avoid more damage.

Thank you!

Ps I have more pictures (farther away if you need more info) but I don't know how to post multiple.

It's kind of hard to tell by looking at the picture. There is a good possibility that the bottom piece goes under the stop piece.
If that is the case you could remove both pieces. Replace the bottom piece and reinstall the stop piece.
There may also be nails coming in through the side which would make the job much more difficult.
You might be able to tap the sides out enough to get a hacksaw blade in to cut nails.
Scope it out and take your time
