El Dorado County Animal Services is looking for a dog that bit a South Lake Tahoe man on Sunday, March 16.  The incident occurred at approximately 6:00 p.m. in the area of Tahoe Keys Boulevard and Washington Avenue in South Lake Tahoe when the man encountered a dog roaming in the neighborhood and attempted to read the dog's tags.  The man was treated and released from medical care.  The dog is described as a medium-sized, Husky type with gray and white fluffy fur, wearing a blue collar and tags.

Animal Services would like to speak to the owner of the dog to verify that the dog is current on its rabies vaccinations so that the man does not have to have post-exposure rabies treatments.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Animal Services at (530) 573-7925.
