    The father of singer Vanessa Carlton says his daughter was bitten by a pit bull while jogging near his northeastern Pennsylvania home.

    Carlton's father, Ed, says his daughter is being treated with antibiotics following the May 2 incident in Shohola, about 100 miles north of Philadelphia.

    Ed Carlton says his daughter was jogging along a road when a neighbor's dog bit her leg. Animal control officials have put the dog under a 10-day home quarantine.

    The state Department of Agriculture says a dog warden will examine the dog at the end of quarantine for signs of illness.

    The 29-year-old songstress is best known for her 2002 hit "A Thousand Miles." She released her third album in 2007.
