As a landlord myself, you are the classic example of why I have a "no pets" policy when renting to tenants.

In my experience (not just with tenants) MOST pet owners are irresponsible and wind up imposing nuisances on their neighbors.

In your case you have a landlord who permits pets, but you can't stop yourself from loading up on pets until they become a nuisance. Now you have two large dogs and three cats in a small apartment.

You have been treated generously by the owner, who now, quite reasonably, has decided enough is enough. I might note that YOU decided that enough was enough, but then ignored your own judgement and added another large dog.

Frankly, your judgement is impaired. It's not a matter of whether the latest dog is aggressive or not. YOU HAVE TOO MANY PETS FOR A SMALL APARTMENT!

Rather than adding dishonesty to your list of behaviors as a model tenant, do some serious thinking about whether you are willing to downsize the pet population or would prefer to move to a different place and keep your pets.

You are a good example of why so many property owners prohibit pets. Make enough of a nuisance of yourself over this issue, and you will probably add your current landlord to that list.
