MADISON, Wis. -

A dog that attacked another dog and bit the dog’s owner is being sought by Department of Public Health – Madison and Dane County officials.

The department said the dog was attacked on Saturday at about 3 p.m. at the Brittingham Dog Park on West Shore Drive in Madison.

A man was bitten as he tried to pry open the mouth of the dog biting his dog, according to health officials.

The dog is described as a black or dark bridle bull mastiff or similar breed.  It’s possibly named Sully.

The dog’s owner is described as a white woman in her mid-20s, short, with an average build and brown hair.
