Bullhead City Animal Care and Welfare (ACW) officers are looking for a dog and owner for standard quarantine procedures after a dog bite.

On Thursday, June 25 at about 7:45 p.m., ACW responded to the area of Colorado Rio Vista and Riverfront launch ramp for a 15-year-old male who had been bit by a dog.

The victim reported that they were playing football by the river when two teenage boys with two German Shepard-type dogs started to cause trouble. They were reportedly threatening to let their dogs go. The victim said one of the boys then let his dog off the leash and it bit him on his buttocks. It was reported that the two teenage boys left with the two dogs in a vehicle with a female driver.

The dog is described as a young, all black shepherd dog.

ACW officers searched the area, but the dog has not yet been located. If anyone has any information, please call the Bureau of Animal Care and Welfare at (928) 763-6000.
