Dog bite victim looks for dog owner

SHEFFIELD LAKE, OH (WOIO) - An 11-year-old Sheffield Lake boy was bit by a dog, and now his parents want to find the dogs owner, so their son does not have to go through painful rabies treatment.

Chris Clark was bit on the hand on June 20th at Ferndale Park.

Chris asked the dog's owner if he could pet the dog and the owner said "yes", but the dog bit his left hand.

The owner disciplined the dog and apologized to Chris.

He was treated at a local hospital and is on anti-biotic's, but, Lorain County Health Officials want him to start the rabies shots immediately.

If the dogs owner comes forward with paperwork showing the dog is properly vaccinated, the boy won't need the rabies shots.
