Dorset Police are continuing to investigate an incident from October in which a woman was bitten on the face by a German Shepherd.

As reported, at around 1.30pm on Wednesday, October 19, a woman aged in her 40s was walking her Yorkshire Terrier on Canford Heath.

She was walking along a narrow path near to a farm at the north end of the heath when she was approached by a woman with two German Shepherds.

The dogs ran toward the victim, so she picked up her Yorkshire Terrier and one of the German Shepherds jumped up and bit her upper lip and forehead.

The owner of the dogs gave a telephone number before leaving the scene following the incident, however it is believed she provided a false number.

Police Constable Jennie Sykes-Martin, of Dorset Police, said: “We are continuing to investigate this incident and have made enquiries to identify the owner of the dog involved, but these have so far proved unsuccessful.

“I am now issuing an image of the woman with her German Shepherds and would urge anyone with information relating to her identity to please get in touch.

“I would also urge the owner of the dogs involved to please do the right thing and come forward so we can take your account of what happened.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk/contact or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55220170362.
