My daughter was walking our 66 lb dog on a leash, when a neighbor’s rat terrier ran up to it unleashed. Our dog bit & shook it before releasing it. The terrier required stitches. Both dogs were in the middle of the street. Can our dog be considered a nuisance? Am I liable for vet bills? Animal services were called & charges are pending (Sarasota Co-FL), although I was told this is an unusual case. Our dog has never bitten another animal or person ever.

The owner of the unleashed dog in this jurisdiction. Don’t know the law in your area…don’t know your area.
