More details to this question:
Our dog bit the same dog twice, however no other dogs. The dog that he bit ran after him when he was a puppy off leash twice. The other dog is off leash on many occasions. The dog received stiches but was not severely injured. Our dog however is a German Shepard. He has been trained. I tutor and many times students come into my house, and he has never attacked any child. He does bark, but he is more scared of them and will run into his crate. We need help as Animal control has not investigated us and are using other people in our HOA that are now saying that our dog has caused problems with them. Not one filed a case with animal control or reported anything until HOA called animal control. The HOA said they wanted out dog deemed dangerous before calling Animal Control.

You will likely need to hire a lawyer to deal with this HOA dispute. Unfortunately, HOA battles are often very costly so you will need to plan on spending several thousand dollars on legal fees just to get started on dealing with such issues.

Animal Law
Whether you own cats, dogs and other pets; breed animals for show and sale; raise livestock, or hunt wild animals, a host of federal, state and local laws govern animals and their welfare. Animal laws also intersect with our day-to-day lives: Can a landlord refuse to rent to you if you own a pet? Can service animals accompany their owners into places where pets aren't traditionally welcome? What happens to the beloved family pet when a couple gets divorced? Whether you're an animal advocate, have been accused of animal cruelty, have a pet that's died as a result of veterinary malpractice or are concerned about the welfare of animals at a local zoo or circus, you need the help of an experienced animal law attorney.
