Teen bitten by dog, fearing rabies infection, searching for owner

An Ottawa teen bitten by a dog is searching for the pet's owner.

Her family is concerned the teen may need rabies shots.

The 17-year-old tells CTV Ottawa she was walking home from school in Barrhaven Wednesday when it happened.

The teen says the owner left a fake telephone number.

The dog they're looking for is medium-to-large size with brown and black fur.

They describe the owner as a blonde woman between the ages of 30 and 40.

Anyone with information is being asked to call 613-941-7562 or email
