My neighbors dog bite my dog. My neighbors dog jumped my fence late at night i let my dogs out not knowing and not being able to see the German Shepard in my yard i walked back inside after letting the dogs out, (3 chihuahuas). I heard yelping barking etc. I walked outside to see if my dog had gotten under the fence again because my neighbors dogs push the fence and the logs i have by my fence to keep my dogs from getting under there. Well he bite one of my dogs on her hind end when my dogs had previously gotten into my neighbors yard he had bitten my other dog. I have notified them "facebook" about the vet bill they are liable for. She had read it and no response. Can i send them a letter stating if the vet bill is not paid for i will take them to small claims court?
The most common animal attacks are dog bites and other injuries caused by dogs. The owner is often held liable, although states vary regarding responsibility.
