A: In Pennsylvania, dogs are considered the personal property of their owner. Generally, dog owners are responsible for damages caused by their dogs. But dog owners may not be the only responsible parties. Someone entrusted with the temporary care or custody of the dog may be liable for damages caused by the animal. Also, someone entrusted with the care of the victim (particularly if the victim is a child) may be liable.
