The victim, a white male, advised he was walking his leashed German short-haired pointer puppy at Brison Park (401 W Dexter). The victim was bit trying to prevent the other dog from possibly biting the puppy. The owner was described as a white male, wearing black basketball shorts and a white t-shirt, plus a baseball cap. The dog was described as a medium-sized mixed breed, primarily black in color, with brown on the feet and eyebrows. The dog was also described as smooth-coated and having floppy ears.
