According to California law, pet owners for the most part, assume strict liability for their animals.
The law stipulates that in most situations, if you suffer an injury by a dog, the dog´s owner may be held accountable for damages caused by their animal. Regardless of the history of the animal or dog may be, and whether the animal was running loose, most people assume that the law allows a dog one "free bite", that is not true.
