A postal carrier is recovering after being attacked by two dogs while on the job.

The attack took place Sunday in Plymouth as the female carrier was delivering a package to a residence in the 15600 block of Portis Street.

The dogs, a Dalmatian mix and American Terrier, got through the doorway of the home and made impact with the carrier, leaving a bite mark in her forearm and tears in her uniform.

She refused additional medical attention after being treated on scene by firefighters and paramedics from Northville Township who responded 

The animal's owners were cited for several ordinance violations, including having unlicensed animals, animals that caused injury and not having control of their animals. The violations are misdemeanors and will require a court date.

The animals were removed and are being evaluated by a veterinarian and also quarantined during that process.
