A woman was bitten by a dog in Alexandra Park in Poole, with the owners leaving without giving their contact details.
The incident occurred at around 12.30pm on Tuesday 27 July. The victim was walking her Shih Tzu through the park when they were approached by a medium-sized black terrier-type dog, believed to be called Milo.
The dog attacked her Shih Tzu and as the victim went to intervene she was bitten on the hand, sustaining a puncture wound as a result.
The dog was being walked by two women, one of whom is described as white, in her early 20s, around five feet tall and of medium build with a shoulder-length brown bob. The other woman had blonde hair and was wearing a black hooded top.
Police Constable Jennie Sykes-Martin, of Dorset Police, said: “We are carrying out enquiries into this incident and I would urge anyone who witnessed what happened, or who has any information relating to the identity of the women involved, to please come forward.
“I would also urge these women to do the right thing and come forward so we can take your account.”
