werden is used both for the future and for the passive voice. If the verb at the end is infinitive, it's future. If it's the past participle, it's passive.
Der Mann wird beißen. - The man will bite.
Der Mann wird gebissen. - The man is bitten.
Der Mann wird gebissen werden. - The man will be bitten.
Yes it does. German word order is more flexible than English's because the role a word plays in the sentence is marked by case instead of position.
Den Hund is in the accusative case (den is the accusative form of der), so it is the object.
Der Mann is nominative case, so it is the subject.
The meaning is the same but you are using the verb "is getting bitten" here, in place of "beißt" which means just "bites". Further, the sentence "The dog is getting bitten by the man" is a sentence in passive voice. In passive voice you must use the verb "beißen" in the third form, which is "gebissen". Similar to English where you must use "to bite" in the third form, "bitten"
