You guys have some horrible neighbours. We don't have any limits on animals in the UK, which is good because when I was little we had 30+ pets. I hope AC give you a different answer.

You might find out what the penalty is in your town if you are cited for having 4 dogs. It is pricy where I live and the fine schedule goes up each time you are cited. My concern would be for the chi baby and what would happen to her if you were cited hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines and ordered to get rid of her. Even if you don't register her, all it takes is a call to AC by your a-hole neighbors and that's it. I am a court clerk and I see this happen to people Ll the time. It is very sad

I believe hearing somewhere that some places might allow you to have more animals if you pay a monthly fee. Maybe you can look into that. But if you decide to bend the rules a little just make sure you have a secure back up plan in case you get caught.

Wow! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one out there who feels like a "Chi crazed lunatic." LOL! Prior to getting Olive (female Chi), I never felt like I was a "dog person." After adopting her, I fell in love with Chi's and have since felt the need to adopt another one. Now we have Angus (male Chi) and my family feels complete. As far as laws are concerned, I'm not even sure what the limits are here where I live.

Some areas make allowances if you foster for a rescue. That is, you are still only allowed to own the legal number, but you are also permitted to foster additional pets above that number. Maybe see if there's anything like that in your area?

I would probably ask a family member if they would register her under their name and address... not sure how you'd feel about that though. So sorry you can't keep her
Edit: Sorry! Just read that, lol
Agreed! I can't for the life of me understand why THAT would be someone's very first question when considering adopting a dog, especially a rescue! As far as trying to register her under a family member's name, we don't have any family in town, the closest is my Mom who lives in state, but in a different city...and I know she wouldn't do it, unfortunately. She's not really a dog person (she hasn't had one herself since childhood), and she thinks that anything more than 1-2 dogs is too many for anyone.

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.

I agree, about the limits being ridiculous! Sure, if I had a dozen dogs or something...but how would one last little dog, to make our family complete and so that each of our furkids has a buddy...how would that be hurting anyone? We have the ability to provide this little one with a loving forever home, quality food, and consistent vet care, plus we are always good about cleaning up after our dogs. I can't see where completing our furfamily should be a problem for anyone, but unfortunately a certain few around here seem to enjoy creating drama. As far as just not registering her, I'll admit I would definitely at least consider that, but as it turns out in this area the way things are set up, there's no possible way of getting around licensing (more on that later, in my last post/after I finish up more replies). Oh and your last line, made my heart smile.

Deana, I guess you'll just have to move! ...somewhere with a bigger limit.

Seriously though she is darling, such sweet eyes.

The limit here is two dogs per dwelling... our pups are all registered, two
with us and two with family. We are planning on moving soon.
