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!

|dawnandjr||Why dont you work on training your sisters dog when you are at home. It only takes a few minutes a day to work on. And even if your sister is there, who cares, she obviously doesnt and sounds like she wants someone else to do it anyway. Keep a clicker and treats with you at all times and anytime there is good behavior going on, give treats. Complaining to her is not working, so action is required before someone gets seriously injured.|

You don't look like a jerk. Or sound like one
I just moved out of a neighborhood full of small, unmanaged dogs, running into my yard and then their owners panicking, even though my GSD largely just ignored their yappy aggression and continued his work, because of their jerk owners' threats to my landlady. 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

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

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!

VTGirlT, better here than Facebook where said dog's owner may be a friend, like I did. But your post is almost word for word what my mother's dog does. I understand your frustration and I too can't wait to move out.
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.

|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.|
