Off-Leash Dog Bites Man

London police are hoping to find the owner of a dog who bit a man in the area of Riverside Dr. and Upper Ave. on Wednesday afternoon.

Police say the man was walking when he saw the dog and approached. Seemingly friendly, the man went to check for a collar with a tag when the dog bit him in the neck and right hand. The bite broke skin and the dog ran off in an unknown direction.

The dog is described as knee height, medium-sized, with long dark-brown hair, floppy ears and a rounded snout. It looks similar to a Shepherd, Collie, or Labrador breed.

London police would like to know if the dog’s vaccinations are up to date.

Anyone with information is asked to call the London Police Service at 519-661-5670.
