Russian: У and Он

 What does У mean?

У него собака. He has a dog.
У неё собака. She has a dog.
У них собака. They have a dog.

Why is it the verb (at least, I think него, неё, and них are conjugations) conjugated by gender, where in other cases you can say Он/Она пьёт ?

I'm trying to learn Russian by virtual immersion, but this one got me really confused.
