Owning a pet is very typical for residents in Georgia. For those that consider themselves dog people, there are many responsibilities that come with being a dog owner. This goes beyond ensuring that their dog is fed, bathed, healthy and taken care of. Dog owners have the responsibility of protecting the public from their dog. While it may not be apparent that a dog has dangerous propensities, if a dog owner fails to warn visitors about their dog’s behaviors or allows their dog to run at large, the dog owner may be responsible for any injuries caused by the dog.

Because dogs are considered “man’s best friend,” individuals do not often think of dogs as dangerous. Nonetheless, these domesticated animals can have dangerous propensities, causing serious harm to those involved in a dog attack.
