Default How strict is the two-pet only policy?

I just moved here and have two small dogs; I would love to rescue a dog but would be in violation. Is this rule strictly enforced? Is there a chance it might be changed? There are so many dogs out there needing a loving home.

I think most people are very animal friendly here in The Villages. I think the rule is in place so people do not abuse it and have lots of critters that might be a nuisance.

I also think that some people fear all dogs and can and will "turn you in".

Contrary to some I don't think it has a thing to do with crabby neighbors as much as dog poo/pee and barking. Personally I have no issue with their rules and regs and if someone does perhaps they should move on to some place more suited to their lifestyle.

If I know someone is breaking the rules and it impacts my quietude and life style you're darn tootin I'll turn them in.

Two Crabby Neighbors and one Dog is One over the Limit! Somebody has to Go!

Live & Let Live! To the OP I would say go for it. If you have a neighbor without a pup maybe you could work something out that the third one could technically be theirs. Gotta think outta the box. Fight for that Doggie.

Dogs are to not be over “x” pounds either. However, there are large and small dog parks... If the dogs are quite and you don’t let them pee or poo in the neighbors yard, you shouldn’t have any problems. I am willing to bet my wife’s SS check there are TV residents that have more than two dogs/pets.

Well Nucky you know I always agree with you and I am soooo "live and let live". I also try to be considerate and will blast NEITHER Emimim NOR Turandot NOR Guys and Dolls NOR The soundtrack from Rent NOR CNN News on my lanai.

But put a neighbor dog next to me that barks all day and all night long, day in and day out, I may just become a different person and look for any way that I could silence the animal including reporting the person if they had more than 2. (And I do love dogs and still grieve the loss of our 14-year old Luca.) A constantly barking dog puts my nerves on edge and that's not what I want for my retirement. (Still friends?) . LOL

I need to add -- this did not happen in The Villages but back in Brooklyn. And fortunately, the dog owners, who were low life tenants in an absentee landlord house near ours, were evicted after close to a nightmarish year whereby we could not enjoy our beautiful oasis of a yard. And yes we spoke to the owners, we called the landlord, called animal control and did everything short of taking a contract out on them! But they persisted in leaving the poor thing out in their yard 24-7. LOL - Did we celebrate when they finally were gone? You bet we did!
