Does Floyd County or Knott County have a leash law for pets?

I hit a huge German Shepherd dog with my car, on the 4 lane at night and it destroyed my front bumper, fog lights, front bumper panel lights and even broke off a car part under my vehicle( I don't know as of right now what the car part is, buts its big, black, and looks like a box kind of..). I really dont know what other damage has been done because it happened last night around 8pm. It was dark, and as soon as it happened my car was making a loud noise, and so i forced to pull over and wait for someone to come help me.

I have full coverage insurance that includes comprehensive coverage. I've already reported it to my insurance, but I must wait on a claim agent to call me in 1 business day. The insurance agent I spoke with couldn't answer my questions about my premium rate increasing if I went through with filing a claim.

I cannot afford a higher premium! So if there is increase in the premium rate, well then I just can't file a claim with my insurance. And having my only vehicle repaired out of my pocket is out of the question. I don't even know if my car is safe to drive, and won't know until the insurance claim agent comes out to look at it. This is my only vehicle, so now I am left without any transportation.

A total night mare. Horrible all the way around. Even though it did happen on the 4 lane, I know the area pretty well as I was a mail carrier there. So finding the dog owner won't be that difficult.

I felt so bad for hitting the dog, but I do understand its not my fault. And now my car is severely damaged.I was on my way home, and before my brain could even register it, I hit it. it happened in the blink of an eye. It could not have been prevented, and I now have to get my car fixed. In my opinion i should not be the one who has to pay for it either by the increase of my monthly premium, or by the charge coming out of my pocket.

Did the dog have a color on it with the owners name? If not can you prove who owns the dog? If so yes they would have to fix your car. But, since the dog canít talk this can be very hard to prove.
