Last friday I officially closed and bought my first home for my Fiance and I. It was a long battle given how the market was but we finally landed a home in a great area. When we were doing walk through s and first seeing the home we notice that the next door neighbors dog was a little territorial and would bark alot and than if you walked over to the common sharing fence between us and them he would bark even worse and growl. Than I noticed that the fence that we do share with them is actually very weak and falling over in some places and its design never looked like it was ever EXTREMELY strong. The opposite neighbor side has a very nice heavy duty fence installed between us (so my yard has two different fencing on each side). I would like to get the same style fence on the opposite side of my yard to the weaker aggressive dog side.
Yesterday we received keys from the previous owners and we asked about the dog and she had said that they did have some problem with the dog jumping on the fence and breaking it in some places. She did say the owner of the dog would replace some of the broken panels but the dog would just break them again so overtime he has given up.
My dilemma is I want the fence fixed for one bc I have a dachshund pup and I dont want to have to worry about him in my backyard. For two I do want there dog to be able to see into my backyard so that he doesnt know were back there when we are and bark his head off. Porblem is having the fence replaced isnt cheap and I feel I shouldnt have to pay alone but obviously with how bad its gotten that owner does feel the need to drop money in it bc he hasnt thus far. ALSO if I do replace the fence and his dog is jumping on it on his side I will be pissed!
What would be some of your guy's advice on what I could or should do??
