OP starts off by giving us a little bit of context on his roommates and the dog situation to get us the details before starting the story.

He says that the dog doesn't behave very well and that his roommate doesn't seem to do anything to help it either.
He goes on to list more of the behavior issues from the dog and expresses how the dog owner doesn't even try to do anything to help train him.
One of the bigger problems is the dog sleeping on the couch at night even though he is not supposed to.
He said that they've all complained but that the roommate just brushes off the complaints and tried to divert the issue to them.
He tries to play devil's advocate a little bti and explain where he may be wrong or where he could agree with his roommate.
Ultimately his issue is that his roommate thinks that they all should be taking care of the dog instead of it just being his responsibility because it is his dog.
Pretty much the first comment said that the dog is not OP's so it is not his responsibility at all to do anything or take care of the dog in any way.
They go on to tell them to set rules and boundaries because it is their home too. It can be a huge responsibility to have a dog so setting rules for that roommate is essential.
This is a pretty true statement too because the dog should be sleeping in the roommates room, instead of in the living room where it isn't allowed and also where the other roommates stay at.
Pretty much everyone said that the dog is not a shared responsibility because it is not his responsibility at all.
Ultimately people said that he is NTA and that he shouldn't be responsible for the dog at all because it isn't his dog at all. People gave him the advice to get the dog trained and to set boundaries with the roommate and his dog.
