Dogs can injure persons a number of ways, not just by biting. A dog can bite, scratch, trip, knock down, or frighten a person, causing injuries. The general rule is that liability for the actions of the dog is based on knowledge on the part of the owner, harbor or keeper that the dog is vicious or has a dangerous propensity. Ironically, therefore, the rule of liability for non-bites is actually the one bite rule itself, which does not require an actual bite as a condition for liability.
