    Sure. Anyone can sue anybody for just about anything in the US.

    Anyone can sue anyone else for just about anything. Winning, on the other hand, may not be that easy.

    If the other dog was running at large and broke into your yard you might stand a good chance of receiving an award for damages. But, if both dogs were running at large or your dog ran into HIS yard, not so much.

    Yes and you might win or you might not win depending on the details/situation. You will have to decide if you believe it is worth it.
