CHESAPEAKE, Va. - Animal services officials are investigating a dog attack that happened on Sunday.

Around 1 p.m., a dog attack happened in southern Chesapeake, near the intersection of Edinburgh Pkwy/Scone Castle Loop.

Officials said a small dog was on a leash and being walked by his owner when it was approached by two loose dogs. The loose dogs proceeded to attack the small dog, causing serious injuries.

The owner of the aggressor dogs took his dogs and fled the scene without rendering aid or exchanging contact information, animal services officials said.

The owner was described as a white male with reddish/blond hair, facial hair, middle aged, about 5'8" - 5'10" and with a "stocky build."

He left the scene in a dark colored/black pickup, possibly a Ford.

The two attacking dogs were described as large (60-70 pound) Boxer/Pitbull type dogs. The dogs were dark in color, either dark brown or grey with white markings on their faces and paws. They had floppy ears and semi-curled tails. It's possible one of the dogs was wearing a purple collar, officials said.

Chesapeake Animal Services is asking for the public's help to locate the owner of the two attacking dogs.
