The Tompkins County Health Department must locate a dog that bit a person near 115 South Quarry Street, in the City of Ithaca. The bite occurred on Monday, October 8, 2018.

The dog is described as a black and white chihuahua or chihuahua mix with a green collar and tags. It was seen running loose near the apartment complex located between South Quarry Street and Valentine Place off East State Street.

The Department seeks to verify vaccination status and health of the biting dog over a ten day period. If the dog can be located and observed to be healthy by the Department, the risk of rabies infection can be ruled out and rabies post-exposure treatment for the person who was bitten will not be necessary.

Anyone with information regarding this dog is urged to call the Tompkins County Environmental Health Division at (607) 274-6688.
