Am I Responsible For The Damages That My Dog Causes?

Yes. You are liable to the injured person for all damages done by your dog, except where the injured person was committing a crime. In addition, if the dog injures another party while affected by rabies, and the owner does not know, or would not have any reason to have known, then the owner is not liable for damages.
