Fellows spoke with the dog’s owner and was told the dog should not be around children.
The animal is described as a 10-year-old white and gray male pitbull according to an Animal Bite Reporting Form by the Clark County Combined Health District.
It is now in quarantine at the Clark County Dog Shelter and will remain there for the next 10 days.
Clark County Dog Warder Sandi Click said after that period the dog will be evaluated. It will not be available for adoption to the public due to its bite status. If the shelter cannot find a rescue to take the dog, he could be euthanized.
