Synonyms of "Tener" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between "tener" de propiedad, por ejemplo: -tengo un perro- and "tener" de hacer algo, por ejemplo:-tengo que comer- and tengo que comer y tengo un perro ?
A: "Tengo que comer/hay que comer/I have to eat"--the verb "have" is being used as an auxiliary verb. In "tengo un perro/I have a dog"-- 'have' is the main verb. In the first instance it signifies obligation and could be replaced with other auxiliary verbs like "could/should/ought to" as in "I should eat/I could eat, etc". When "have" is used as a main verb it means that you posses something as in "I have a dog/pencil/computer/etc".
