Many states, including Texas, have passed laws which hold a dog owner liable for a dog bite attack even if the dog has never bitten anyone. This is called strict liability. These types of laws effectively eliminate the “one-free bite” rule because liability is based upon ownership. It is irrelevant whether the dog bit someone previously but rather whether the owner knew the animal had a capacity or tendency to be vicious or aggressive towards humans.
