Well, it is kinda tough to ask for money for your car when you killed their dog with it.
Doesn't matter. Leash laws would mean the dog should have been restrained and they're responsible for the damage to the car.

It shouldn't be. If they had been responsible about controlling their animal the car wouldn't be damaged and the poor dog would be alive.
Hm, let's say instead of a dog it's a child that ran away from home. How would the situation be then in your opinion?



Now you could say animals are not children. But for some people they are. And there is such a thing as neglecting parental/supervisory duties, which is comparable to neglecting leash laws.
In both cases, what it comes down eventually - in my opinion - is the cruel statement "Dude, your dog/kid ruined my car."
