Did you file a police report? Perhaps you should regardless of the landlord offering to pay for the vet bills.
He simply want to cover his ass and hopes you will not file suit against him. Your only possible avenue for later harassment from the owner of the dog, your landlord giving you notice to vacate in 30 days or whatever is to support your position with a police report.
So they do not like it, too bad...
The chance of them screwing with you is much less if YOU TAKEACTION NOW Lynn. Your gut feeling is most likely correct.
Perhaps this dog has attacked others, maybe the landlord has/had a responsibility to warn you!
Lots of things are out there you know nothing about except that she let out her dog WITHOUT consideration for yours!! The landlord is crazy to cover it all up with paying vet bills.
I am not suggesting you rush out and file some suit against everyone but your position, if they try to say it is your fault, is lessened if you have failed to file a report.
DO it NOW.
