No. If your dog wanders upon the land of your neighbor by itself, and you have no knowledge that your dog has entered your neighbor's property you will not be liable for a trespass. Because you will not be held liable for a trespass, you will also not be liable for any damage that your dog does while it is on the property of a neighbor. However, if your dog does have violent propensities and injures another person on their own land you will be held liable just as you would if your violent dog injured someone in a place where it had a right to be.
