When we turn to section 11-1025 of the Arizona Revised Statutes, we can see that a dog owner is responsible for providing compensation to victims for any losses they sustain after a bite, regardless of whether or not the dog has ever bitten anybody before or shown viciousness in the past. So long as the injury victim sustained the dog bite injury when they were in a public place or lawfully in a private place, the dog owner will be responsible.
