Public Assistance Request – Dog Bite – Owen Sound

Grey Bruce Public Health is requesting the public’s help in locating the owner of a dog involved in a biting incident that took place Saturday, May 25, 2024, on Owen Sound’s east side.

At about 7:15 p.m., a teen was bitten by a large black dog at Ed Taylor Park on 12th Avenue East.

The dog, believed to be named Gus, was being walked by a couple who was also walking a smaller blonde dog, possibly named Teddy. The teen had asked to pet the dog before the incident occurred.

Grey Bruce Public Health needs to confirm the dog is not infectious with the rabies virus. By verifying the health of the dog, the victim can avoid receiving the post-exposure rabies treatment.

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to call Grey Bruce Public 
Health at 519-376-9420 ext. 1355.
