If you are suing a private party, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the dog bite, so you have more time. (With a government entity, such as the circumstance when you are bitten by a police dog, you must file a government claim within six months).
Normally after you file a government claim, the governmental entity will reject your claim within sixty days and that triggers your obligation to file a lawsuit in superior court within six months of the date of rejection.
It is critical that a dog bite victim contact our office as soon as possible so that we are able to identify all potential defendants and make sure that timely claims are filed, and also so that we may identify applicable insurance policies and preserve evidence.
