Just make sure you do your research to a T. Talk to people, get information (printed preferably and highlight specific points), copies of EVERYTHING. If your doctor "prescribes" your dog as a theraputic aid, it may very well be enough to force the landlord to allow him to stay. Having a GSD can be tricky beyond belief. Documented proof that you've gone off the meds since having your boy will help. Also taking basic obedience classes on up through advanced obedience as well as CGC test and passing can work wonders as well.

You want to basically start a profile of your dog of all the good he's done with classes. Get a letter from your vet stating he's a good dog during visits. Take him to obedience classes and once the class is completed, ask the trainer to write a letter of recommendation about your boy. Every little thing helps. You want to pretty much have all this documentation SHOWING from various people and professionals that your dog is a model citizen.

He's a beautiful pup. Why don't you contact his breeder and talk to him/her about your landlady's last minute decision and see if they will board your pup until you can find a new place to live?

OMG that dog looks SOOOOO VICIOUS!!! I would NEVER get rid of my dog because some idiots think it's Vicious! I am paying to stay there with my family and my pets are part of my family! I can not give better advice than what has already been given... The community here is so amazing! Bonus your puppy is gorgeous... and if he is so vicious how come he is not eating that kitty!

Sorry to hear about your lost.

If you absolutely need to board, I suggest you do a Michigan German Shepherd Club search. I'm sure you will find someone thur them to help you out.

BTW: I use to work for a Management Co and your landlord is within her rights; however it does sound there is some politics in play there.

Asia - could you please list your city that you live in so people in your area might see your post? Also, ask the mod to place your city and state in the title of your post so the appropriate people see it.

I too wish I was closer or I would keep him for you. I find it odd that pitbulls are allowed but GSDs are not.

If not that, the white shepherd is recognized by the FCI as Berger Blanc Suisse.
Berger Blanc Suisse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

IT IS NOT A GERMAN SHEPHERD! The white Shepherd is it's own breed.

Not Therapy Dog. NO NO NO!
If you want to keep that dog, get him to sign him off as an EMOTIONAL SUPPORT DOG.
Read about the differences here: Renting with an Emotional Support Dog, Service Dog or Therapy Dog | Einhorn Insurance

He has got to be an emotional support dog because a therapy dog is trained to bring comfort to others, not comfort to you!

Good luck to you.

If this happens to anybody else, most communities have a free tenant's advocate office who can help a tenant avoid this type of situation. I think the landlord just doesn't like your dog (or you) and is using it as an excuse.

Asia, I am so sorry for your loss.

I think maybe the best thing to do is talk with a lawyer if nothing is in the lease paperwork concerning the breed/size of dog and you can document the others. He is a puppy, you are moving, you have just been through a traumatic experience, there should be some way to keep him with you while you are preparing for the move. Oft times you can get a free consult.

There is a section for support/assistance dogs. I would PM some of the mods there. It does not sound to me like he would meet any criteria as a medically approved service dog but I don't know that much. It is clear you have a legitimate need for some emotional support right now. Who would not after what you have been through?
