Being bitten by a dog can be frightening, especially if you are young. Sometimes the psychological effects of a dog attack can be worse than the physical injuries, but not always. Even breeds that are considered to be friendly can cause serious harm to the face, limbs, or other body parts. Many parents are concerned about scars; others worry about the future impact of trauma on their children.
Dog owners are responsible for the behavior of their pets — and they can be sued for damages when their dogs hurt someone else.
