    in NC if your yard is clearly posted(no tresspassing or beware of dog) and someone comes on your property irregardless of intent and your dogs are in a fence or leashed or in the house, especially uninvited you are in no way liable and can charge a person with trespassing

    I had a shepherd mix that would bite my mother regularly for 19 yrs. As a puppy, she pushed him past his limit and he bit her. After that she was scared to death of him and he would bite her every chance he got. Was he HA? I never thought so, even in his later years when he was partially paralized, he never even tried to bite anyone but her. When he was 17, my sister and her newborn and 2yr old stayed with me for a time. He was never around small children before that. He was inseparatable from the 2yr old, you couldn't have asked for a better babysitter.

    ejslks, I think the definition of "HA" is personal.

    IMO, an HA dog will bite/attack anyone at anytime with no warning. If a dog is selectively biting someone (your mother) and it's predictable that doesn't sound like human aggression UNLESS, the exception of course, is if the dog was not just biting, but attacking, meaning multiple stitches, possible fractures etc. Even then, if the dog is basing it's reaction on a particular event that was traumatizing, I have a hard time classifying that dog as HA, when trully it's fearful of one particular person for a logical, or at least dog-logical reason. Of course this all MY OPINION only! LOL
