I don't know, but my neighbors are good people and take good care of themselves, their animals (they have a farm) and their property. We are on good terms with them. The dogs are not kenneled and do run their large farm, so I guess it's possible that they could get rabies. I guess I should be proactive and ask them.

Since he didn't break the skin, I wouldn't worry one bit. If you think it would make you feel better, put some antibiotic ointment on it. But our skin is wonderfully good at keeping bad bacteria out, so long as it isn't broken.
I'm sorry you got bit--that must have been scary! I have never been bitten by a dog before, I bet it would make me pretty leery of dogs if I did. Hope your ankle feels better soon!
Oh my goodness!! How awful and freaky and probably painful! I would say more than likely there's nothing to worry about. If you were wearing jeans and the teeth didn't penetrate the skin, just scratched you, I would say you're fine. But it doesn't hurt to ask your neighbors about the dog. Plus at least that way they will know their dog attacked/bit you. It's not really smart to have a moody mutt running around. Anything could happen and usually tends to.
I agree with Joy since he didn't break the skin there is probably not much to worry about but you can put some antibiotic cream on it. I think I would just ask them to make sure there dog was up to date on it's shots.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
