Complaining to her is not working, so action is required before someone gets seriously injured.
Good point, i will have to look up good ways to work with a resource guarder, i already have some ideas and some i been trying some to start! And thankfully her dog is VERY food motivated, so that will be on my side.

Even after she told them she was going to put up a fence to keep me there.

And know what, I couldn't be happier right now. I LOVED that little cottage on the lake. And I was devastated when my landlady said she just couldn't stand their threats of lawsuit any longer. (None that they could bring, btw, because my big dogs never hurt a fly)

You will get such a sense of relief after you move! It is stressful moving, and expensive, but I promise when that tension gets relieved... Well, it is priceless

Wow that is a maddening situation!
Too bad your landlord didn't fully trust that your dog wouldn't hurt a fly!
I am looking forward to the low stress life of having my own place for me and my girl! It will be lovely! I can manage another year of this, i think, but no more than that!

My parents don't understand that if that dog outlives them neither my sister nor I are willing to take her. She's just too dangerous with children and other dogs. She's a 10lb Bichon mix! If she out lives them she is going to the vet because I will not allow a dog that bites the way she does to be rehomed. For now I just avoid my mother (one of the dog's resource guarding high value items) and make sure I have a slip leash handy if I ever have to "handle" her.
Ya exactly, my sister is on my facebook, she isn't on here, at least that i'm aware of! If she does see it, good then i guess in some ways!

Sounds awful! Perhaps it has a case of little dog syndrome?

VTGirlT It's actually my sister, who doesn't technically live here, but her dog is here a lot and she is also here quite a bit.

I am in the works of trying to get into a career i think i will like, but i have a ways to go and cannot move out till i have a better paying job (i work over 40 hours now-a-days and am just getting by!) Moving out will improve Zelda and my life greatly.

And the beagle is the one my dog tries to play with sometimes when no other dog is here, but the beagle wants nothing to do with any dog. And Zelda just barks at her (which is annoying for people and i'm sure for the dog!) however, i can easily redirect Zelda when i see it happen.. And she listens better when i tell her to stop lately too.

But my sisters dog is actually a GSD/Golden mix that i'm talking about. She is about 70 pounds. So it is quite a big deal if they get into a fight or if Zelda gets bit. Thankfully Zelda is longer, wider and taller than griffy by a bit, not sure about the weight as she is quite lean and still a growing girl.. So at least she isn't a little dog!

Sunflowers Is this your roommate? It sounds like a pretty dangerous situation. One day your dog may not want to tolerate it anymore, and your dog could kill that nasty beagle.
