Loose dog alert

From the Fredericksburg Police daily crime report:

1000 block Idlewild Blvd, 2/2 4:00 pm. A couple walking in the neighborhood

encountered another dog running loose. When the husband attempted to discourage the loose

dog from following them, the dog attacked him, biting him in the face and forearm. The wife

also received less severe bites and abrasions on her face. Both victims required treatment at

Mary Washington Hospital for their injuries. The dog was described as medium to large in

size, with brindle coloring and wearing a brown or black collar with tags. The victims

described the dog as possibly being a mixed breed pit bull, but the shape of the dog’s nose was

longer and narrower than a typical pit bull. Anyone with information regarding this animal

should contact the Fredericksburg Police Department at (540)373-3122.
