What Will Happen To The Dog?

In most cases, absolutely nothing happens to the dog except that it might be quarantined for a few days (frequently at the dog owner’s home). If the attack is brutal or other conditions are met, however, the local animal control authority or court may issue orders requiring that the dog be confined or destroyed.

Dog bite victims often do not want anything to happen to the dog. If the local animal control department has not been notified, the victim can instruct his or her attorney to refrain from doing so. The attorney is required to follow the clients instructions with regard to notification of the authorities (as well as anything else affecting the client’s rights). A victim, therefore, can be assured that nothing will happen to a dog against the victim’s will.
