Wanted in Rabies Test

Mrs. Douglas Brown, of 70 West 11th Street, is looking for the dog who took a nip out of her son last Sunday. She does not intend legal action, but only wants to know if the animal has been innoculated for rabies.

Her son Christopher, 15, was standing by the cigar store at Sixth Avenue and 11th Street around 2 p.m. when he was bitten. He described the dog as being of average size with grey, shaggy hair, and the general appearance of a Skye terrier or small sheep dog.

Mrs. Brown yesterday told The Voice she will have to have her son innoculated unless some information can be obtained about the dog. She can be reached at OR 4-7368.
