A South Bay family is making a public appeal after a dog ran onto the grounds of a middle school, biting a 7th grade student.

Devin Grace was working on his homework while he waiting for his ride to pick him up from Rancho Del Rey Middle School. That's when the dogs showed up. 

"Then I heard footsteps behind me," Grace said. "So I turned around and saw two big dogs."

School surveillance video shows two Huskies running loose on the sidewalk.

Grace says one of the dogs got a hold of his shorts, a blue car pulled up. Two men in their 20's got out and whistled for the dogs. They asked if he was ok and drove away after he replied, "Yes."

Grace says, at the time, he didn't feel any pain. Once they were gone, he saw the bite mark on his left thigh.

Grace and his family now hope the dog's owners will come forward.

"I would like to know if the dog that bit me got its rabies shot," said Grace.

If they don't learn soon about the dog's history, Grace will have to endure a month-long rabies regimen. The regimen is not as painful as it has been in the past, but it's something the family wants to avoid.

An investigation is underway. If you have any information on the owners, call the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility at (619) 476-2476.
