What will happen to the dog?

In most cases, nothing will happen to the dog except that it might be quarantined for a few days (frequently at the dog owner's home). However, if the attack is exceptionally brutal, or other conditions are met, the local animal control authority or court may issue orders requiring that the dog be confined or destroyed.
