Man’s best friend is furry and kind and always there when needed. A dog will do anything they can to protect their owner and have been known to do spectacular things in the face of danger. If you have been injured from man’s best friend, contact an Oregon pit bull bite lawyer.
Unfortunately, not all dogs are loved and cared for like you might think. There are several dogs with owners that do not train them, care for them, or even feed them. Some dog owners may even resort to abusing their dogs. This is a horrible thing as many pet lovers cannot imagine hurting their furry companion.
An unloving dog owner not only fails to give their pet the life that they deserve, they also put others in danger in the process. If a dog is not properly trained, or thinks that all humans are as inconsiderate and abusive as their owner might be, a serious danger may be created for any other people that come into contact with the dog.
An unleashed, uncontrollable dog can put anyone at serious risk. Dog bites and attacks can cause serious harm, not just a scratch her and there. Victims have been known to have brain hemorrhages, broken bones, and have even suffered permanent facial damage.
Pit bulls are responsible for the largest percent of dog attacks that have been reported, even though the breed of dog only makes up a small portion of the overall dog population. We urge everyone to be cautious when around this type of dog as the risk of attack is increased.
Although certain breeds are more dangerous than others, that does not mean that all dogs do not have the potential to cause someone harm. If a dog attacks an innocent victim, the dog owner can be held liable for failing to control their animal. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury as a result from a dog bite attack, contact an Oregon pit bull lawyer today.
