A four-year-old boy has been hospitalized after being attacked by a dog in Manchester.

The child had been riding his scooter in the moments before the horrific incident.

As he and his family were walking down Danesdale Drive and towards the Rochdale Canal towpath, an off-leash dog approached.

The animal, described by police as a “male bulldog type,” then attacked the boy.

He was taken to the hospital, where he required treatment for leg injuries.

Investigators are looking for the dog’s owner.

They say he left the scene after the attack, which took place at 4 p.m. on December 14.

In a statement, Greater Manchester Police said: “The dog’s owner initially stopped but left a short time later, walking towards Rodney Street and Steven Hunt Street, the dog still not on a leash.

“The dog is described as a male British bulldog type that was mottled in color – both tan and white – large and strong.

“The owner is described as a white male with a strong build, short dark hair and large blue eyes.

“He was possibly in his mid-20s and was wearing a white top. He was walking a second dog, a small black bulldog, who appeared to be on a leash.’

“We want to identify and speak to the owner of these dogs or reach out to the general public who may know the owner of the dog – or have experienced similar incidents in the past few weeks.”

Anyone with information about this incident, CCTV, footage or who knows who these dogs belong to should contact police on 0161 856 65933 or 101 quoting Incident 2493 of 05/08/2022
