As a subtenant, you have no greater rights than the tenant. If the lease doesn't allow pets, the subtenant can't have pets.
Make sure you get a written sublease -- and the consent of the landlord -- before you move in and start paying rent.
Unless the sublease provides for an early termination, the tenant can't just decide to move back in before the end of the sublease.
