A female victim flagged down a Boston Police officer at 4823 Washington Street after she was bit by her neighbor's dog.
The woman told an officer that she knows the person who is either her neighbor or the dog walker, of a fawn boxer dog, that allegedly bit her, according to a Boston Police report.
Police drove around the area, but could not find the dog.
