On July 24, 2020 my son was talking to some kids beside the dog house then a girl from that house opened the front door then a dog run out and attacked my son. A man who happened to live beside the doghouse came and help my son. After the incident, my sister and the witness went to the doghouse and nocked to their door a girl responded then they asked about her mother, she called several times to her mom she never responded. 5 minutes later the mother left the house and went inside her car then drove away so that mean she doesn't care and might took the dog with her.

What is animal control telling you they are going to do, if anything?

Customer
Animal control went to the house for investigating but the lady told them that it wasn't her dog then she gave that a non working number to call the own because it belong to someone she barely know. For now the animal control can't do anything so they have to wait until the dog come back and someone have to see the mother with the dog in order to sue her
Customer
I saw the dog yester and I told animal about that, I even have a picture which shows her daughter holding the dog but animal control said they want a picture with the mother not the children
Customer
I saw it yesterday

They are not correct.

First, call animal control and speak to a supervisor. Make it clear that you fear for your child's safety and the mother has lied to them and they need to address it.

Second, have a lawyer send the woman a letter demanding compensation and threatening a lawsuit.

What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.

You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.

The number is:

1-***-***-****

Or you can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.

Here's the link to their website:

Does that help as a starting point?
