Dog Owners' Responsibilities
South Carolina dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets or working dogs. This includes responsibility for any injury the animal causes someone who was not provoking or harassing the canine.
South Carolina law specifically makes a dog owner responsible for a dog identified as a “dangerous animal.” A dangerous animal is one that is known to attack or to be likely to attack people unprovoked. The owner has a legal duty to register and confine such an animal.
