I am renting a house with another man and about 6 months ago he bought a dog that bites me whenever I come downstairs from my room. There are two bedrooms and a shared kitchen, living room, bathroom & dining room. I have asked the other tenant to get a muzzle for the dog or to keep it out of the common areas so I don't fear being bit if I have to use them, but he refuses saying "I must be hurting the dog for it to be biting me" (I would NEVER hurt an animal). I have told the landlord about the dog attacks & even shown him the bites and scars I have but he isn't helping me. I am a prisoner in my own home. I am looking for another place to live but no luck yet as I don't have the money for first, last and security saved up yet. Do I have any rights to get the dog removed until I can get out?
