A dog in Tamarac is dead, shot by a Broward Sheriff's Deputy.
Cops say someone called 9-1-1 to say a loose dog tried to bite them in the 69-hundred block of NW 76th Dr.
A responding officer avoided being bitten by the dog three times before shooting it dead.
No injuries are reported ... animal control is trying to find the dog's owner.
