Not unless you actually have a condition that would allow you to have a service dog...

Have you considered moving? You might be able to have a relative watch your dogs while you look for a dog friendly place to live.

Not yet because we just recieved a note this morning that "the animal must be removed immediately"

My dogs are well behaved and are very friendly its just so happened my other dog, whom i have to give to my relative, has a bit of a seperation anxiety going on and we tried to leave her yesterday to do errands and i guess her barking and crying is the cause.

Makes me a bit angry that a pet friendly building treats dogs just like an object. They said either we move to their $2000+ loft or give them papers that say theyre a service dog.

What about a pet deposit? Or maybe get the dog the Good Citizen Award. That might help.After the good citizen award maybe you can't take him to nursing homes and such, that might pacify them. If it is a pet friendly apartment building, ask them what you can do to keep the puppy. Maybe it was just the barking dog that needed to go. Sometimes a calm conversation might help. Other than that read your lease and see if you have broken any of the conditions. Good luck!

You can get emotional service dog tags very easily. Here is the link: Service Dog ID Tags - Custom Service Dog Badges

A friend recommended this to me when I wanted to bring my dog to a public event. I don't know what state you live in, but I'm fairly certain that it is illegal to ask for any type of identification for a service dog. At least in California it is. Is it in your lease that dogs are not allowed? Did the note look official? Maybe find a new place to live where problems like this won't arise. Lying to your landlord is never a good choice.

Well we had our dog for over 2 years here with no complaints and we even knew the old manager who said nothing but after the barking yesterday the new manager said they only accept dogs at loft units which is VERY expensive or they need service/medical/support papers.

We're just going to move to a better spot and even near a park but its just quite frustrating to know itll take awhile and they want them out ASAP and at the same time cant be able to train her to be alone.

Oh and said if the dogs are a service dog then they must be certified and the management must give written aproval of acceptance for the dog.

If you have been living with the dog there for two years and it is in your lease agreement that said dog is allowed I would be expecting them to either 1) lease me a loft at the same price as the current dwelling or 2) pay all of my moving expenses to a different complex. If you're in violation of your lease unfortunately you're out of luck but hopefully that is not the case. Hope it works out for you.

Go through the copy of the lease you signed and look up your local laws. If it says nothing about having a dog they have no right to force you to take immediate action.

If your lease stipulated you could have pets with conditions (size, breed, noise level etc.) review it and see if you have violated the terms. As for trying to say your dog is a service dog (emotional or whatever) please realize that if you do that it is fraud. So many people try to work around the law to suit their own needs or convienence and it makes it hard for people who really have a need for a service animal. Just getting a tag on the internet doesn't make it legal. Your apt manager can not ask you to explain the nature of a disability (if you have one) but don't put yourself in a position where you really will be evicted because you lied that your dog was a service animan when indeed it was not.
