This case involves a man in Massachusetts who was seriously injured when his neighbors allowed two of their rottweilers to escape from the backseat of their car without a leash. At the time of the incident in question, the man’s neighbor was returning home with the rottweilers in his car. As he got out of his car to open the door to his garage he left his car door open, allowing his dogs to escape. The owner failed to have the aggressive dogs on collars or leashes, and also failed to have them muzzled despite prior incidents of violent behavior against strangers. The dogs ran onto the plaintiff’s property and attacked him. As a result of the attack, the plaintiff suffered serious injuries to his hand that required a number of corrective surgeries to repair.
