Officials seek leashed dog suspected of biting jogger

Public health officials are looking for a dog they said bit a jogger on Madison's west side Tuesday. 

The Department of Public Health said a woman was running  near the 4000 block of Paunack Avenue when a leashed dog bit her. 

The dog was a chocolate colored Cocker Spaniel on a "flexi leash" and it was accompanied by a blonde woman in her 30s who is possibly pregnant, according to a news release.

Anyone with information on the dog bite is asked to call Dane County dispatch at 255-2345 and ask for the animal services officer. 

According to the Department of Public Health, if the dog is not located the victim may have to complete a series of painful and costly injections to prevent rabies.
