JANESVILLE—Police are asking for the public's help in finding a dog that bit a child this week, but not too much help.

The Janesville Police Department warned residents not to try to capture the dog, as it might not be friendly.

Police say the dog bit the child at 2225 Pioneer Road shortly after the dog escaped its owner Wednesday. The address is just east of UW-Rock County on the city's south side.

The dog, named Marley, is described as an American pit bull wearing a Green Bay Packers collar. The dog also is mostly white with some smaller brown spots, and it weighs about 100 pounds, police said.

Anyone seeing a dog of that description is asked to call Janesville police at 608-757-2244 or 608-755-3100.
