    Aleksandër is with Alban and his (own) dog.

Usage notes

Used in contexts where i tij (his), i saj (her) or i tyre (their) would be ambiguous. In the example sentence above, if "e vet" were replaced with "e tij", it would more likely refer to Alban's dog. The use of "vet" removes this ambiguity.
