Your landlord waived his "no pet" clause, so I wouldnt worry about that. To prove you've had the pet for a while, maintain a pet file; in it keep copies of when dog goes to vet, receipts of food purchases for dog, etc. You get the idea. He'll lose in court. I would also pay the rent certified mail; LL would have to provide valid reason why he no longer is accepting rent from you. Your best defense, is evidence. Other people in bldg own dogs - sounds like discrimination. If you're smart, and LL is careless, he could be charged in housing court and ultimately owe you a lot of money.
Now, has anyone, other than landlord complained about pet? Assuming you work full time and are away from home, it could be that your dog is barking during the day. Some dogs bark and howl from anxiety, loneliness, etc. This may be a problem for you. If false, then start maintaining a file.
