Hillsborough County Fire Rescue transported a child Wednesday night to Brandon Regional Medical Center for a dog bite.

Witnesses on scene tell ABC Action News, a 12-year-old boy was playing near his home in the 1300 block of Valley Groves Dr. in Seffner when the dog attacked. 

The victim's wound is a single puncture and very minor in nature, according to Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Larry McKinnon. 

McKinnon tells ABC Action News, the boy was taken to the hospital for a tetanus shot and is okay.

At this time, it is unclear if the dog was provoked.
