Police had been looking for the woman after the alleged attack on a recreational trail on March 31.
The owner of the German shepherd reported to police he and his dog were walking on the Mraz Loop on the property owned by the South East Land Trust behind the Piscassic Greenway around 1 p.m. when the loose dog attacked.
The dog owner mentioned to police that there was a woman walking two dogs in the same area during the time of his walk. One of her dogs was on leash while the other was not, police said.
According to the owner of the German shepherd, the woman began yelling to control the unleashed dog while it attacked the German shepherd named Boru, who has a prosthetic front leg.
Once the woman's vicious dog was dragged off the victim dog, the woman quickly disappeared with both of her dogs, police said.
Boru was brought to the Brentwood County Animal Hospital and it is unknown how he is doing.
Police said the owner of the attacking dog took responsibility and likely will not face charges.
