The Brentwood Police Department responded to the area of Walnut Park Thursday morning for a pair of loose dogs who reportedly bit three people.
The incident took place along Carnegie Lane and later Hudson Dr. and Nunn St. just off Walnut Blvd. and Armstrong Road while it put a nearby preschool on lock down as a precaution.
Brentwood Police were able to catch the Labrador retriever wondering the streets pretty quickly, but a Sharpei ran from police before stopping at a nearby park to rest. As police approached the dog, it took off again and ran home to 4600 block of Nunn Street.
Police had to taser the Sharpei in the backyard after it became aggressive with police and were able to work with animal control to get the pit bull into the animal control vehicle.
According to radio traffic, a total of three people were believed to be bit.
According to Contra Costa County Animal Control, the dogs will be held for 10-days for rabies quarantine and they will now determine if they should be designated as “dangerous animals”
Correction: originally, the Sharpei who bit two people was believed to be a pit bull, per law enforcement, they have now stated the dog is a Sharpei and we have made the change.
