In Texas there is a statute in the Texas Health and Safety Code that describes animals and more specifically dog behavior rules. Dogs that are accused of biting a person have two levels of severity in the code. The first is Bodily Injury and secondly Serious Bodily Injury. Many municipalities have varied rules dealing with animals as well. Some jurisdictions have rules about animals that attack other animals such as the Austin Dangerous and Vicious Dog Ordinance, Round Rock Ordinance, Georgetown Ordinance, Bastrop Ordinance, Pflugerville Ordinance.
We, as a dangerous dog attorney, represent dog owners who have pets accused of breaking the rules. Whether it is scaring someone, biting someone, or biting/attacking another animal. There are many factors that come into play when an incident happens. Dogs are not people and they have their own rules and ways to meet other animals. People become overly emotional over some situations where no injury actually occurs or ones in which the supposed victim actually causes the situation.

Recently a case involving Neville at Austin Pets Alive occurred. The mother let a child interact with a unfamiliar nervous dog at the rescue. The dog Neville, felt like it needed to protect itself. He almost lost his life over it. Luckily he is living a nice life in another state today. Eric Torberson was happy to be a part of the team who helped Neville.
Dangerous Dog hearings in Texas can be very one-sided. Many times it is a person’s word against a dog. The dog obviously cannot speak for itself and needs proper representation in court to keep it from a dangerous dog designation or sometimes euthanization.
