MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — Moorhead police are asking for the public’s help in locating a dog that bit a teenage boy this week.
Police say the 14-year-old was riding his bike on Monday evening when he reported a dog ran up and bit him on the back of the calf, breaking the skin.
The dog’s owner retrieved her dog and told the boy that the dog had had its rabies shots and he shouldn’t worry. But since the dog’s vaccination records cannot be confirmed, the boy has started rabies shots.
The dog is described as a small, white, overweight dog with pointy ears.
If the dog is found and is current on its vaccinations, the boy won’t have to have more shots.
