Garston man facing eviction said he would rather 'live in a tent in the park' than give up beloved dog

First published in News

A Garston man facing eviction says he may be forced to become homeless and live in a tent to keep his beloved pet dog after Watford Borough Council said they cannot house them both.

Steve McMahon, 47, suffers from a broken neck and says besides pain and medication his staffie Lionel has been the only constant in his life for the last two years.

But the former British Gas engineer is due to be evicted in September because his landlady is selling the house, and Watford Borough Council has "given an ultimatum" saying they have no one-bed properties that will accommodate dogs.

It has sparked a mass petition from his Garston neighbours, who have taken the fight to Elected Mayor Dorothy Thornhill and Watford MP Richard Harrington’s office.

The petition presented to Mayor Thornhill entitled ‘Please Keep Steve and Lionel Living In Our Local Community’ has more than 60 signatures from his friends and supporters.

Steve, who lives in Third Avenue, said: "The housing department gave me an ultimatum - get rid of the dog or we won’t be in a position to help you.

"They said they have no one-bedroom properties that will take dogs.

"You wouldn’t ask for children to get adopted - he’s like my child. Taking him for walks makes me better. And it goes the other way too, he gets distressed if I’m away from him. 

"I’d much rather live in a tent in the park than give him up. I’m not making a sacrifice like that."

Steve, who was injured in an industrial accident, got Lionel from a rescue home in 2012. Walking the five-year-old staffie three times a day has become his physiotherapy.

Steve, who has done several fundraising events for military charities and volunteered at local dog events, said he has been overwhelmed with the support from his neighbours and fellow dog walkers.

More than 60 signed a petition to Mayor Thornhill asking her to review his situation.

The petition stated: "As a group we wish to stress that we find Steve to be an affable, popular and valuable member of our community and hope that a way can be found to keep him and his lovable dog amongst us for the foreseeable future."

Mary Kearney, Watford Borough Council spokesman, said: "The demand for accommodation in Watford far outstrips supply which can make it difficult for people to find a suitable home especially if they have a pet. 

"The council doesn’t own any housing stock but we work with Housing Associations and private landlords in providing affordable accommodation. 

"Very few private landlords in Watford allow tenants to keep pets but this is something that is simply beyond our control. 

"We do sympathise with people who want to keep their pets, however our focus is on helping people find affordable homes which in itself is a major challenge.

"The council is always looking for private landlords to work with us and would be delighted to hear from any who would accommodate pets.  If you have a property to let, you can find details of our HomeLet Scheme on our website www.watford.gov.uk or by emailing homelet@watford.gov.uk."

The attachment to the dog is understandable and it must be awful having to contemplate giving it up, but I dont see why people are complaining to the council about it as its not something they can really do anything about.

Landlords usually dont allow dogs because they dont want damage to their property (yes not all dogs are badly behaved but you dont know that before hand do you) or because especially in flats or in places with communal entrances there is issue with noise, suitability, dirt etc. If you make an exception for one person and their dog you'd have to start making it for all and the landlords would then start getting an even greater number of complaints from the other side ie people who are being annoyed by dogs in innapropriate places.

Its not an easy decision but this man does have to give up his dog if he wants the council to accommodate him. If he doesnt and becomes homeless thats his decision i'm afraid

A Dog is much much more than a pet for this man and many others, they are companions and it's very harsh of the housing associations to put a blanket ban on them. I hope a private landlord who is a dog lover is reading this and can help? Pets contribute to better mental health FACT especially for people living alone.

If that's the case and he can prove that he needs his dog then the council, housing trust could be braking the law under disability discrimination act and he should contact equal and human rights commission (EHRC) for further advice.

If I’m a **** for being realistic then that is better than being a well meaning but misguided do-gooder whose advise or plan of action will lead to this chap turning down accommodation via the council and many other landlords.

Firstly I did say I knew it was an awful decision to have to make but my comment was based on the reality of the situation which is there are practical reasons why landlords don’t allow and/or want dogs/pets into flats and other housing. They haven’t for many a year, this chaps situation is not new or unique and his predicament is not going to make them change their minds when they haven’t for thousands of others who have faced the same decision over the years (and when they know if they did change the policy they would face a whole new set of ongoing problems and complaints from tenants as a consequence)

This airy fairy advise people are giving and demand for a petition isn’t going to change the situation, if the chap follows the advise or pins his hopes on a petition he is going to wake up on the day he has to leave his current home with nowhere to go. I take no pleasure in saying that, nor am I saying that I particularly agree or disagree with the policy and I have said that I know that it is an awful decision to make. But that is the reality, not the fantasy world many of you seem to be living in.

No, I added the asterisks as my word to describe you is the ultimate cuss.
Again the indigenous people, who by the way, are by and large dog lovers again at the bottom of social housing priority, proving yet again the WASP/RC are second class citizens in our own home.
You still overlook the fact that if you love something ( something that a vain sanctimonious tool like you would struggle with) regardless of what it is, you can't simply give it up.
Any way I'll quote a line of an old irish folk song...all Gods creatures have a place in the choir.
