Dogs are a man’s best friend, until an untrained or aggravated dog attacks you. In order to avoid dog bites, stay away from dogs restricted from movement (i.e, in a cage, tied to a post, locked in a car). If anything, let the dog sniff you first before touching it. When injured by a dog, seek medical attention and find the owner and information about the dog. Always remember that when a dog attacks you and no measures of isolating said dog present themselves, the liability falls on the owner.
