Last week Annabelle bit my neighbors 25lb dog. I was outside in the front yard with my 1 yr old, and great dane, and the neighbors dog came running at me + my son barking. My dog stepped in and bit her dog. The dog went to the vet, and has now been in the hospital for 1 week. The neighbor said that the bill is up to $9000. She has not asked for money yet. I feel aweful. But since her dog came across the street to my house, is it even my responsibility to pay? My neighbor told me that the vet could clearly tell this was a bit out of defense, not an attack. My dog bit 1 time, but since her dog was small, and mine is a great dane, her dog got hurt. I just need some advice. Anything would be great. Thanks!
