My dog is a pit and I am currently visiting my mother. She has a fenced house with a gate and he has found spots through the gate to escape through. We have been reinforcing the fence in these spots but he seems to find a way. He is not aggressive and has never biten anything or anyone.

See what your lease says about changes. If your lease expired and you are on month to month, he can say they can't be at the property the following month. Under no circumstances hand him the lease--always hand people copies of documents, you retain the original.

Our neighbor has been spreading lies about our dogs for years. Saying they were viscous, they have attacked them, etc. Our dog got into some trouble and their lies caused the situation to escalate quickly and resulted in our dog being taken away for 6 weeks, and going through a whole ordeal.

Unfortunately, no because Colorado views dogs as property so that would be like suing for defamation for someone spreading lies about your couch.
