A dangerous dog is a classification given to a dog by the proper animal authority in your jurisdiction. A jurisdiction's animal authority will find a dog dangerous if the dog has previously (1) aggressively attacked, bitten, endangered or caused severe injury to a human being, (2) has more than one time severely injured or killed another domestic animal while away from the owner's property, (3) has been involved in dog fighting or has been trained for dog fighting or (4) has aggressively or in a menacing manner chased or approached a person while that person was in a public place.
