I think I read a case similar to this (you might want to do a search in the case database) in which the tenant's pet - like yours - was "grandfathered" in when the new owner purchased the building. This means that the new owner gets the building "as is" - with all agreements (written and unwritten) remaining in effect. If a landlord knows you have a pet, and takes no action for a period of three months, he or she in effect agrees to let you keep the pet. JUST IN CASE - you should have friendly fellow tenants ready to back you up (with affidavits if necessary) to prove that your dog has been 'in the house' for three or more months. Even better, if your outgoing landlord is friendly, have him or her add a rider to your lease allowing you to keep your dog in the apartment.
