How to Identify a Dangerous Dog

Even small dogs can cause serious harm if they attack a person. It’s important to be aware and cautious if you are around a dog. If you suspect a dog might attack you, never run away. Running will only make an aggressive dog chase after you. If a dog displays any of the following behaviors, slowly walk away to a safer area, preferably one that creates a barrier between you and the dog:

  • Intense Growling
  • Stiff Tail
  • Showing Teeth
  • Licking Lips
  • Flicking Tongue
  • Tense Body
  • Flattened Ears

What Should If I’m Attacked by a Dog?

The first thing you should do following a dog attack is to get medical attention to determine the severity of your injury. If you want to take legal action to recover compensation for your injury damages, then you will need to do the following so your attorney will have what they need to build a strong case:

  • File a report of the attack with animal control
  • Take pictures of any injuries you sustained from the attack
  • Take pictures of the location where the dog attacked you
  • Write down the names and addresses of any parties who witnessed the attack
  • Get the name of the dog owner
  • Request the dog owner’s insurance policy information
  • Report the attack to the landlord or store manager if it occurred at a rental property or a retail establishment
