Dog Owner Liability
In New Mexico, dog owners can be held liable either under the "one
bite" rule or the negligence rule. The "one bite" rule
is based on the idea that the dog owner was aware of the dog's previous
aggression and has committed "one bite" against another individual.
The negligence rule is based on the idea that the dog owner did not take
reasonable care to prevent other from being injured by their dog, despite
knowing about the dog's aggressiveness. Dog owner negligence can include
failing to keep a dog on a leash or keeping a dog in a fence.
