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.
