Approximately one third of all American households have a dog. While most dogs are considered docile and obedient, without proper socialization, any dog can be provoked into biting by loud noises or threatening situations. It is the responsibility of the dog’s owner to seek proper training in obedience to ensure that the dog will not attack. If the dog is overly aggressive, the owner should be responsible to report to an animal shelter if the dog is prone to attacking people.
Los Angeles area animal attacks occur quite frequently, the most common being dog bites. An attack can happen to anyone; however, research shows that children are most risks. Close to half of those inflicted with dog bite injuries are children.
Dog bite injuries often leave victims with scars and other lasting effects. Serious cases of dog attacks can even result in death.
