Animal Services searching for dangerous dog and its owner in Newport News

13News Now Niko Clemmons spoke to the owner of a dog who was attacked by another dog accused of two attacks in nine months.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WVEC) -- The Newport News Animal Services Division is looking for a man and his dog, after the animal attacked another dog for the second time in less than a year.

Newport News Animal Services said on September 14, 35-year-old Ryan Gardner's dog Brody attacked another dog in the 100 block of Yeardly Drive.  A court ruled Brody as a "Dangerous Dog" following another attack nine months earlier.  In both cases, the victim dogs survived their life-threatening injuries.

Warrants have been issued against Gardner for vicious dog, dangerous dog - failure to obey control requirements, and dangerous dog - failure to notify of reporting event.

Gardner was last known to reside in the 10 block of White Oak Drive, and may frequent the 300 block of Majestic Court.  Brody is described as an older male pit bull that is mostly light brown in color, with a white chest and black muzzle.

Anyone who may have information about Gardner and his dog Brody's whereabouts is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
