How do I talk to my roommate about his dog?

gratefuluser Question ? How do I talk to my roommate about his dog My roommate and I lived together last year, and she wanted a dog since I knew him, but has not actually done serious attempts to get one until this year. In August we moved into a new apartment where he was just the two of us and she started talking about adopting a dog. So we went to the Humane Society and completed the paperwork …. but as it turns out, our hostess will not allow it in our unit especially if the adoption was refusée.Environ 2 weeks after this happened, new boyfriend, my roommate found a stray dog ​​(approx. 5yo chihuahua) on the side of the road and brought it to my roommate. At first, she was ecstatic because she thought it was a puppy because of its size, but once she discovered that it was not a puppy but an older dog, she and her little friend (who has so eloquently called the dog “damaged goods” because it was not a puppy) decided it would be better to take her to the Humane Society so that I could save rommmate money to get a puppy instead (the dog stayed in my room that night BC My roommate could not ‘t BEAR to keep her bc she was sad SOO). I thought that after this traumatic event, it certainly would not want to adopt a dog because I did not really want one after that night …. The next morning they took her to human society and, apparently, human society would not take her bc they did not know its origins, and my roommate should have obtained her vaccinated (which costs money she did not want to spend on “damaged goods”) so they took to control animals and he left his place since his libre.Quelques hours later (when I was at work) I got a text from her saying she had adopted a puppy from eight months collie mix of human society. When I asked him how this was possible, she said they had put the dog under his name since he had a bf court and its owner did not care (her bf has since left the house and an apartment similar to ours without fenced in yard). She did not ask before it adopted the dog and I honestly thought that after what had happened with the Chihuahua she would not want to adopt a chien.Quoi In any case, I was really helping with the dog mostly because I feel bad about how long it stays in her cage during the day (I used to get him out, try to train him, and play with him), but as the school gained more and more demanding, I could take less. He usually stays in his cage during the week of about 10 to about 2 or 15 hours, then she leaves the bathroom, and will lay on his bed and he can run around the house (not to play with him) until about 4 or 17 hours, then goes either to his class at night, or work from 17 hours up to 9 or 22 hours. He does not sleep in his cage at night unless she is at her bf in this case, it takes about 10 or 10:30 p.m. ET can not come home to let him out until about 10:30 or 11 am the next morning. On weekends, she will let him out at any time from 10 to 12 hours (or whenever it rises), then go to work at 11 or 1 and get off work and come home around 10:30 p.m. . It is a good dog and never pee or poop in his cage (to my knowledge), but I feel really bad for him bc longer she and her bf are together, the less time she spends with the dog (once I got home and took him out of the BC box I knew he had been there a long time, and before I could get the leash on him, he started to pee on the carpet by the door … his legs were shaking so I knew he could not hold it). As I said, I tried to train him, but my roommate is essentially non-fact, I do whetever and insists that since he is a puppy, he “can not not (and or should not) be formed “…. So instead when he does something bad or she hits her bf him (I refused to hit him, and they made fun of me actually). It is also really anxious and playful nips and jumps on our customers a lot, and when he gets to spend time outside the cage, frantically he turns around and pleurniche.Je feel really bad for the dog, but as n is not forced to stay outside, has food and water, and shows no signs of physical abuse, I feel trapped. I do not think it is a suitable guardian for him, and I expressed my feelings about him by leaving him in his cage all day in his life, there are several (not much has changed). We are already in trouble bc her boyfriend was overstepped his bounds in our house recently and I confronted him about it a week ago as well (he got a little better) but there is much tension between us bc of it it. Should I tell her I think she should take the dog? Should I tell my hostess that she was holding the dog, even if it is a crime? Should I call the Humane Society and tell them what happens? (The reason this has happened for so long is bc I thought That I know this is a long post, but if you go to comment please read throughout. MerciMeilleure response: Answer

You sure do a lot to say about this dog, do you take anything too seriously? Bring to the vet, he may have a chip so it can be returned to its owner.

  • I’m not sure what you mean “how can I talk to my roommate.” Just talk to her. Be 100% simple in your thoughts and feelings about having a dog illegal (depending on your lease) in your apartment and if she keeps the dog, you must notify the landlord (you must let him know of any so. Now, you are simply a part of the problem not the solution.). The dog must remain at the place of her boyfriend. This is where he belongs. Tell him the dog is out there, period, because you will not deal with him more longtemps.Ne not waste your time talking to him about his care of the dog. It would be wasted breath.

  • sit down and talk to her

  • This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard! You need to call the humane society and tell them what is going on right now. She and her boyfriend need to take the dog back. If they were down at the pound Chihuahua, this is what they will do more likley with this dog when it is” to” old. There are SOOO many houses better than this dog could go where he would live a good life wonderful. Chihuahua that neither he nor deserve a home like that. If he stays here it could lead to a type of trauma that the stations of emotional abuse. This could lead to him never being able to be formed and these dogs are almost always made when the owner decides to dump this dog’s fate is in your hands now.

  • Holy crap, what a drama! This “answer” is unlikely to be useful, but that “issue” reminds me of how few people should have a dog in this world. Just tell her she has not the time to care for a living, and she needs to find a house for him and not even consider making another until his life settles … if it ever does.

  • Find the dog a home and propose to her. She owns shite and really should not have dogs.

  • you should advertise for a suitable family and re-home while your roommate is out of the house and tell him he ran away …

  • You really need to talk to him about it. The puppy should not be left in the kennel for so long. And it seems that nobody has the time to properly train this puppy and it will more than likely develop some kind of problem phsyciological. It would have been better with the old chihuahua. just because he was older does not allow the damaged property. It was pretty cruel of them to leave because he was older. As for a new dog. You kind of helpped into thinking it was okay to make a home because you went with it the first time watching the dogs and filled out the paperwork … also it is not just for her to leave the dog with you when she goes to her place bf it must take the puppy with her, because it seems that its all their dog. Puppies are very trainable and are eager to please their owners, even more than adult dogs sometimes. If you think she should keep the dog to have a conversation with her very severe, or you notify the owner and she will be forced to get rid of the puppy. I know the feeling of wanting a puppy, but you must put the puppy in front the best interest of all that happens. Puppies need to be left about every 2-6 hours unless his night. The best thing to do is print a schedule for the pup who works with his schedule

  • Find a way, the owner can “accidentally” see the dog. This should be suffisant.Je agree, you two do not need a dog.

  • I agree that your roommate is not a suitable guardian for this dog. Collies are high energy dogs and need space to run. They also need to be trained and socialized early. At 8 months a lot of collies get chilly for people and other dogs and if they are not trained out of it, will become more aggressive later in the vie.Je draw your lady of the land because the longer you leave , the worse it is for you when your land lady asks why you did not report it before. I would also call the human society and tell them that your roommate is to keep the dog in your apartment that does not allow dogs and it spent most of his time in the caisse.Non only that, but if she gave back chihuahua because he was not a puppy, what will happen when this is an adult collie? I currently have friends who are in a similar situation with two puppies that are about 6 months. Their land lord does not allow dogs on the property and so when the lord of the land says he just made an inspection, they send their dog out of me and other friends. Both dogs are almost fully formed and one of them even bites (really chewy) on your arm when you go in their backyard. One of their roommates is actually afraid to go in their yard, because these two puppies are so poorly comporté.Les puppies can be trained when young and in fact must be trained before they reach full size. My puppy is 6 months old now and has already completed an obedience class. He even go through a second-and is so well behaved, I do not hesitate to leave him alone in the yard or take it with me wherever I vais.Je would not talk to your roommate, the instead ask the lady of the land to make an inspection. When she comes by it will notice the dog and you can confirm that he lives there.
