Hi! My name is Richard & I will be helping you today! It will take me a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
Hi Kerie. Can you provide me just a bit more information? Did your dog have any history of such aggressive behavior? If so, did you provide the day care any notice of this? Thanks.
Thank you. You're not going to be liable here. One, your dog had no aggressive history. Two, and most importantly, your dog was in the day care's care and they are the responsible party here. It was their negligence that resulted in this injury. It's pretty rich of them to act like this is your fault, but they have no legitimate basis for this. They've been taking care of your dog for 6 months and had full knowledge of your dog's disposition; furthermore, given your dog's prior wounds, the day care probably has a history of negligent behavior. So, although you can never prevent someone from filing a claim against you, I don't see any avenue for them to prevail; and I would let them know if they do pursue something, that you not only will contest this fully, but also be filing suit against them for negligence.
