My question involves a condominium located in the State of: Texas
I was walking my 2 dogs outside of the property fence and as I came around a corner 2 neighbors were standing there inside the fence, one lady with her little dog who started barking and trying to run at my dogs as soon as she saw us, and another lady with 3 chihuahuas. When the little dog started barking my pit bull started barking back and also jumping up and down. That owner apologized for "starting trouble" and walked off with her dog.
As I was trying to calm my dog down the lady with the 3 chihuahuas just stood there staring, then started yelling at me "what condo are you in? You shouldn't have dangerous dogs in this complex!" over and over again. At that point I am getting angry and she keeps yelling, which starts her dogs barking, and my dog keeps getting more excited. My dog broke out of her harness and ran over the fence, barking and jumping on the fence.
She then started yelling even louder, calling me names, saying she was going to have my dogs removed, that I am "dummy for having pit bulls in a condominium complex", that I am bad owner, one of her dogs was attacked and she had the board remove that dog, and more. I kept yelling back "just leave, what is your problem, and why are you trying to start something with me?" I finally was able to grab my dogs collar and she still would not leave, still kept yelling at me as I was putting her harness back on. Finally she walked off saying she was going to call the board to remove my dangerous dogs, still calling me names, and that she better not see me walking them around.
First off my male pit did nothing but stand there the entire time. I actually think he was frightened by all the commotion and is sensitive when someone raises their voice at him. I am really worried she is going to contact the board and they will force me to remove my dogs even though my dog didn't actually attack hers.
The condo HOA rules and regs states "Pets deemed a nuisance by the Board are subject to permanent removal from the property."
Any advice is appreciated!! These are my babies and we bought this condo because we couldn't find any apartments that allowed pits. They have never hurt anyone!!
