Most likely, a person bitten by a stray dog will not have a legal claim as long as the owner of the dog cannot be determined, and municipalities are generally not responsible for stray dogs. If, however, a dog is being kept at the local San Diego pound and escapes and bites you, you may have a claim against the San Diego dog pound. If the injured person argues that the pound's negligence caused him or her injury, he or she may be able to recover legal damages
