Re-posting from Nextdoor.com (with poster's permission) . . . . URGENT - looking for owner of dog that bit my husband - NEED SHOT RECORDS Hello, I am hoping someone can help me find the owner of a dog that bit my husband this evening at the dog park area of the Main Library park in Cambridge (the semi-enclosed part of park next to playground). It was about 5:30pm. Our dog (brown labradoodle) got in a fight with a blonde colored short haired medium size dog. When my husband pulled our dog away the other dog came after him and bit him on his wrist. He didn't get information on the dog's rabies shots, and did not get a name or phone number. My huband is going to have to have rabies shots if we don't find this dog and its owner to be sure it's had its shots. I'm sure it has, but we can't take chances. He has to go to the ER to go on antibiotics too. Thanks for any help. Noone is in trouble, just need to find out the shot records. Much appreciated, Belinda & Michael 617-448-2717
