The victim sustained serious injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment.
The dog is described as a fully grown, brown STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER. PC James Loi, who is investigating the incident for Bedfordshire Police, said: "The owner of the dog is a man but unfortunately the victim has not been able to give us any further details as to his description, so we are appealing for the public's help in identifying him.
"The incident took place in a busy park, and I'm hopeful that someone who was in the park on Sunday witnessed the incident and will be able to describe the owner to us. If you were in the park and you saw a person with a dog matching the description, or you know who the owner is, please do come forward. Your information could be vital to our investigation.
