Tenant's battle continues over dog
DETERMINED Paul Regan is not giving up hope that he can keep his dog in his home, despite suffering a major blow.
The 55-year-old, of Queen's Road, Prior's Park, Tewkesbury, has been told to stop keeping his pet in his flat.
Landlord Severn Vale Housing Society says he is breaking its policy, which bans people from having pets in its flats that have a communal entrance.
Mr Regan has now discovered that his appeal to the Housing Ombudsman Service has failed.

In its report on the matter, it dismissed his appeal, saying: "We understand that you have some health issues and that you may well benefit from having a pet. We also note that you collected a number of signatories to you petition against the policy.
"However, the fact is that Severn Vale Housing Society's policy does not allow this in your current tenancy and as a tenant, you are required to abide by these rules."
Mr Regan said he was disappointed at the service's decision but he planned to battle on and still had no intention of removing his two-year-old shih tzu from his home.
He said Severn Vale would now be taking him to court over the matter, though the society said no decision had been taken yet.
