Honestly, those limits are ridiculous and extremely hard to enforce. Just don't register her! 4 small dogs doesn't make you a hoarder! We had 5 dogs before our older ones passed- ranging from a beagle (40 lbs) to a chi. We provided excellent vet care and nutrition and they were all loved. We had a limit of 3- we just didn't register the last two. There was no way anyone would ever know.

She's precious. Go see her.

That's how I feel, lol! Though, I wouldn't be able to get away with it. My cocker spaniel baby was stolen, so I MUST have my dogs microchipped. Here, when they microchip your dog, or when they're seen at the vet, they alway send something in to the Sherrifs office, then the Sherrifs office sends you something saying you need to register them or pay a fine

Oh Yeah! She is precious. I think deep down inside, you know you cannot conscientiously adopt her! BUT. . .I don't know. It's a tough one. Hubby would tell me not to ask questions on how many we could have! Also, don't the regulations change from time to time? And don't you have an older dog that isn't doing so well . . .wink - wink! You would just be saving her place!!

Even here in MA our town has a limit of four. I think, that if you want to go over the limit it should be taken on an individual basis. Besides, weight would be the best way to decide what you can have. I have 2 dogs and one cat. The cat does not have to be registered!! What's up with that?? My neighbor has 9 - yes 9 cats!! They are all indoor, half of them were ferel and she can't even pet them!

I feel for you. Every once in a while I look at the sites, but luckily haven't seen anything I could "fall in love with!"

I would do as others have suggested - register her at a family members address, then even if your neighbors do call AC for whatever reason, you can just say you are looking after her for them for a few days. Is this possible at all?

I believe everything happens for a reason, this Chi is beautiful xx

Do you live in Omaha? I found that if you're in Omaha you can file for a pet advocation permit.
"*Note: Omaha residents may apply for a pet avocation permit which allows up to 5 dogs and up to 6 catsóbut no more than 8 pets total. An initial inspection fee of $100 is required at the time of application. An annual $50 permit fee is required thereafter. Pet Avocation Permit Applications are available at the Nebraska Humane Society and can be picked up at the front desk during business hours."
And it looks like a few other cities/counties have permits you can apply for to own more than three dogs. You may even be allowed to file for a kennel permit.
Or there's the old fashioned way and you just adopt the cutie and play dumb should you get reported (which, odds are you wouldn't). You would give the pup a wonderful home and since that's what they want they should be fine with the adoption.
I actually had someone report me to the ASPCA (I had reported them after I found out they killed a whole bunch of mice by placing them in a tupperware container and let her other animals starve so they decided to "get back" at me) and at that time I had 5 cats and 2 dogs, which technically broke the ordinance (we could have 6 total animals) but after explaining the situation to the agent and letting them know why they were called to begin with, the agent could see my home and my animals in great (if not spoiled) condition, they said "Well.. I only see two dogs and two cats so you're fine", even though I had told him how many lived there. So, even if an agent is called you may get an agent who actually cares about the home and the animal's care rather than a number (now, if you push it to 10 dogs I don't think they could ignore that :P ).
....(sorry for blathering on )...

I would say to just not register her, but it sounds like you have some hard to live with neighbours. I would worry that if a situation did arise, that she would end up homeless again. I guess it depends on how strict your city is with the bylaw. I know of someone who had to deal with animal control here and it's scary how they can remove an animal from your home.

Our AC is awful here. I'm not sure on the animal limit but I am definitely over it. (20+ pets...mostly rodents we only have 2 cats and one dog here, one dog at another house, not sure of rules on pocket pets really)

But we have chickens. Our flock this time last year consisted of 3 roosters. I had two show birds, a polish and a silkie, and one mix who's highly aggressive. We had 8 hens as well. Our CCRs had no rules on chickens, you could have 100 of them, any gender. well, they changed the CCRS without any warning.

We have nasty neighbors. So nasty that they have threatened to murder my chickens. They shoot at the wild songbirds as well and brag about killing them, which is totally illegal, and I watched the wife chase and kick a mother duck who had babies.

They reported the "extra" birds literally the same week the ordinance changed. The city said they had to go or they would be killed. I have never rehomed a pet...that week I sent away 5 of my children. The look on their faces...they tried to follow me to the car.

I left them at a ranch out in the middle of nowhere with some close friends. I had to get rid of all of my show quality birds, birds I had hoped to take to the fair, compete with. They were members of my family. They even were allowed indoors sometimes. But for the remaining birds sake I had to send away the healthy birds. My remaining chickens have issues, some mental and some physical, that make it hard for them sometimes. I kept the aggressive rooster as well..he is so mean that no one will go in his pen except me. If they do they end up in serious trouble, he's huge and angry. I love them all of course but miss the two show boys. I know that they are doing well though, my friends have a room in their barn with furniture for the barn cats and a cat door and I think a heater and they said the chickens go in the cat door and sit on the couch, sometimes laying eggs. Ha.

I guess what I'm saying is be careful. Not getting her now will be easier than losing her later...or god forbid your neighbors get mad and try to hurt or kill your dogs like mine have. If you get her (and I do kind of want you to haha) be prepared to double your watch and be very careful with her at all times. It would also be worthwhile to find a friend who could take her if the unthinkable happened.
