Dog Bites & Attacks
Regardless of how someone views dogs, they are considered animals, even if your furry pal is part of your family. Animals, and dogs specifically, may have unexplainable, adverse reactions and end up biting or attacking someone. Whether it's considered a good dog or bad dog, the dog can still bite you. The could be experiencing feelings of excitement, anxiety, and fear to name a few. In some situations, the dog that bit you could be a dog that has never bit anyone else and has never shown signs of aggression. If that is the case, then that particular dog falls under the Texas One Bite Rule. This essentially means that the owner of the dog is given the benefit of the doubt and a dog bite claim cannot be pursued.
