DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The City of Dubuque Health Services is looking for a dog they say was involved in a biting incident.

They say the dog is mostly black with some brown, possibly a Rottweiler or a mix, weighing about 40-50 pounds.  They say it was wearing a collar with a yellow tag on it.

According to a press release, the dog bit a woman on the hand at about 1:00 p.m. on Fremont Ave. near the Wartberg Apartments.  They say the dog then ran towards the wooded area near the train tracks.

The Health Department wants to verify the dog's health status and vaccination history.  If you have any information, call the Health Department at 563-589-4185 between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. or call the Law Enforcement Center at 563-589-4415 after hours or on the weekend.
