WESTMINSTER, Md. — The Carroll County Health Department is asking people for help in finding a dog that bit someone last week.

According to the health department, it happened on February 15 at about 6:00 p.m. across from the American Legion in Taneytown.

The dog was described as being a medium-sized brindle pitbull mix with short, straight fur and a short, straight tail.

The health department says it is likely that the victim of the attack will be treated with a series of post-exposure rabies shots if the dog has not been found and verified to be in good health by Monday morning.

If you have any information that may help locate this dog or its owner, please contact the Carroll County Health Department at (410) 876-1884 or the Carroll County Humane Society at (410) 848-4810.
