I would like to simply say “rules are rules, obey them”. But I have seen people in a brand new neighborhood with more than 2 dogs. I was told they were allowed to buy a home with more than 2 dogs with the caveat that once they no longer exceed the limit with the dogs they moved in with, they could no longer have more than 2. So, at least one side is allowed to bend the rules when it benefits them. But I also recently heard a story of a woman that moved away because she was reported (notorious crabby neighbors) for having more than the limit and either the extra animal had to go or all of them had to. She chose the latter. I know for me, personally, I don’t want to have to make that choice, so while I give credit to anyone rescuing animals, especially dogs, I would still recommend abiding by the rules you agreed to when you moved in.

As for the original question, and has been eluded to, most of your deed restrictions are subject to enforcement only after complaint by neighbors. So if and how far you can bend them is highly dependent on them. And you never know who they will be tomorrow or a year from now.

Deed restrictions can vary from one district to another. I believe some are limited to only 1 pet. Find them, read them, and then it’s up to you to decide whether anything you do to break them is worth the risk/price.

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
Oh yeah, I was envisioning a proper dog owner who controls their animals in every way. No way does that yapper thing fly even if its only one pup.

I love the name of your dog. Luca, definitely in the running. If our dog is a little slow then Freddo.

What a non-judgemental, informative answer. Very well put.

CFrance, you seem shocked. LOL

It comes down to asking yourself the following question:

Am I willing to give up an animal or my home?

If the answer is no to either, or both, then follow the rules.

Not at all. I appreciated the non-snarky explanation.

Deleted my original post. It was anger at the people who can't follow rules and I'll leave that tirade to myself.

Apply this question to a next door neighbor with a car up on cement blocks in his driveway.

So true. Many years ago we found a beautiful vacation home on a mountain in the Adirondacks. The view was spectacular if you looked past the home right below it that had old cars, refrigerators and other unidentifiable types of rusted machinery spewn on the property reminiscent of Tobacco Road. Needless to say, we did not buy!

I love having the rules here in The Villages. I don't want to live next to a kennel nor a Ceramic Pink Flamingo Farm.
