She Brought a Dog to Her Dorm Even Though She Wasn’t Allowed so Her Roommate Reported Her to The Campus

A 19-year-old woman recently sought advice online, questioning whether she was at fault for bringing a dog into her dorm despite knowing that her roommate disliked dogs. Here’s what she had to say.

The girl lives on campus in a house with two other students. They generally get along well and have never had any big arguments.

One Day, Her Mom Phoned Her with An Urgent Issue

She needed to leave the country for an emergency visit and was set to go a few days later.

Her mom has a dog that she can’t take with her, so someone needs to look after him while she’s away.

“He is very loyal and doesn’t really listen to anyone else but my mom. Also, being a former stray, he’s not the best with strangers,” the woman said.

So naturally, the best option would be for the dog to stay with the 19-year-old.

She Ran the Idea Past Her Roommates

She asked her roommates how they would feel about the dog staying with them for two weeks, and one of the friends immediately said yes.

The other, however, wasn’t as keen.

“She said that she had allergies and was also slightly scared of dogs, so she didn’t really want one to stay with us but said, if there isn’t another option, then it’s okay,” the woman explained.

It wasn’t a firm no, so she told her mom that if she couldn’t find anyone else to look after it, then it would be fine.

The next day, the mom called her daughter and said there were no other options and the dog would have to stay with her. 

“I told my mom that my roommate was allergic and scared, but mom said to ask anyway. So I woke her up (she was asleep). I said, “I’m really sorry to put you in a hard spot, but my dog has nowhere else to go. I know you aren’t completely okay with it, so is there anything I can do?”

She Promised to Keep the Dog Away from The Roommate

Annoyingly, the roommate wouldn’t give her a straight answer even though the young woman asked her several times. So she just thought that she was tired. She offered to keep the dog downstairs so she wouldn’t have to deal with the dog upstairs. It wouldn’t bother the roommate, and the young woman promised he wouldn’t be a nuisance. 

The Roommate Reluctantly Agreed

“After a bit of back and forth, she said okay, so I thanked her and apologized again, then left to call my mom,” she said.

So on the day, a family friend brought the dog down to the woman’s dorm and got it all set up with food and toys. Just as they were about to leave, the resident advisor for the dorm arrived and told them that dogs are not allowed.

“I tried to explain that there aren’t any options left and that the roommate said sure last night, but the RA just said that there are no exceptions to the policy and that it was uncool of me to keep him here, but we could talk to the director.”

The Roommate Had Reported the Young Woman

So the woman went to see the director, and right outside his office was the roommate. She avoided eye contact with the woman and quickly left.

“I was angry with her; I thought she was okay with it, but no, she wasn’t, and instead of coming to me, she just went to the RA. My mom and her friend said she was being rude and cowardly.”

She Began Doubting Her Actions

The woman also thought the roommate was rude, but on second thought, perhaps she’d misjudged the situation. 

Perhaps she had felt forced and was uncomfortable speaking to the woman about it. 

So Was She Wrong?

The young woman, therefore, reached out to the Reddit community and asked if she was in the wrong. 

They all agreed she was.

“YTA. Kennels and dog-sitting services were viable options,” one person said. 

Another wrote, “I’d already be annoyed because this is not a wake me up in the middle of the night issue. Checking if dogs were even allowed should have been your first course of action. You should have stopped pressing the issue when she initially showed reluctance and told you she was allergic and scared of dogs. This was not the only option. Boarding kennels exist.”
