Carson rabies case prompts puppy search
February 25, 2014
Douglas County Animal Services is seeking a boxer-mix puppy that was one of a litter connected with a rabies case that exposed two Carson City residents.
The 12-13-week-old male dog was adopted when he was 5-6 weeks old.
Animal Services Supervisor Janet Duzan said that the dog was last given to a woman, who was contacted through Facebook and met at the Tillman 7-Eleven in the Gardnerville Ranchos in mid-January.
Anyone with information about the dog is asked to contact Douglas County Animal Services at 782-9061.
Two Carson City residents underwent rabies treatment from exposure to a puppy that tested positive last week, according to health officials.
