Amador County, known as the “Heart of the Mother Lode”, is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada region of northern California. Officially known as the County of Amador, the region is home to less than 39,000 people.
The county derives its name from José María Amador, a rancher, miner and soldier who established a booming gold mining camp in and around present-day Amador City, which is roughly 45 miles from Sacramento.
Since the California Gold Rush, Amador County has become known for its scenic vineyards and thriving viticulture industry. In fact, part of the county helps make up the Shenandoah Valley, one of the premier viticulture hubs in California, which is renowned across the world for its Zinfandel wine production.
Like most communities across the country, many residents in Amador County are dog owners. That carries with it a number of responsibilities, and risks, including the risk for a dog bite accident, and any subsequent personal injury.
Dog Bite Injuries in Amador County
In the United States each year, roughly 800,000 dog bite injuries require some sort of medical care. Unfortunately, there is no foolproof way to prevent these types of accidents, but there are steps that can be taken to eliminate risk, aside from training.
When confronted by a dog, the most important thing to try to maintain your composure. When around any canine, it is important to take special care, especially if the animal is sleeping, eating, or caring for its young. This is also true for dogs that are chained or tied up – recent statistics from the American Humane Society reveal that dogs that are chained up are nearly three times more likely to bite an individual, compared to dogs that are unchained.
Dog bite incidents are also not restricted to any specific breed. Though many believe some breeds to be more violent than others, this is simply not the case. In fact, more than 25 dog breeds have been implicated in dog-bite related injuries or fatalities.
Nearly 60 percent of deaths due to dog bite involved dogs that were unrestrained on the owner’s property, confirming that dog bites can happen virtually anywhere, at anytime.
