EVERETT — Three dogs have been quarantined after one of them reportedly bit a person in north Everett.

The bite happened April 4, Everett city spokeswoman Kate Reardon said.

The city requires dogs to be quarantined if they are believed to be involved in a bite to a human. Details about who was bit weren’t immediately available.

City officials asked the owners to bring the dogs in, and the owners complied, she said.

It is not clear which dog bit the person. The dogs also are suspected of an attack on a pug around the same time.

The dogs had been living in the 1900 block of Colby Avenue. There is no other known attack history for them.

The case remained under investigation, and the dogs still were in city custody as of Friday evening.
