A Southwest Greensburg woman began a series of shots for rabies after she said a dog bit her Monday on Urania Avenue in Greensburg, city police said.

Joyce Hobaugh, 45, of 503 Chestnut St., took the first in a series of five total injections after police said they were unable to find the dog.

She said the large, black dog was possibly a German shepherd.

The dog knocked her to the ground shortly before 2 p.m., then bit her in the jaw area, Hobaugh said.
