Legal Question in Real Estate Law in New York

Waiver of liability for dog bite

My friend resides in a home owned by his mother. My friend owns a dog. His mother is concerned that the dog may bite someone and that she would be held liable. My friend wants to know if there's a way he can somehow legally relieve her of any responsibility should his dog bite someone.

Thank you.

1. No, all he can do is agree to indemnify her for any monetary responsibility.

2. She can put up a sign "dangerous dog on premises".
