Our house is in a very live and let live area. (Not on The Hysterical side, that area is a law unto itself.)
Dogs, but only in two's as far as I have seen, a few biggies, and a real soft Pitbull, at least two businesses being run from home, white crosses, Sand Crane garden ornaments ( no pink flamingos yet) and various other infringements, but we all get on and turn the proverbial blind eye.
Works well for us.

Like most posters here have said, it really depends on your neighbors. Community Standards will only come knocking if someone reports you. I know this from personal experience. I had some glass flower sculptures in my landscaping - a deed compliance violation based on one, poorly defined sentence in the deed. over 40% of my community has brass birds, whirligigs, concrete statues in their yards. I asked Community Standards why we were being singled out and she replied, "Because someone complained and we are complaint, not compliance driven." So, if you are on good terms with your neighbors and the dogs are well behaved, you should be okay.

You already have two, and are hoping to intentionally break the rules to bring in a third. You know that's against the rules, and we know you know it, because you told us you know it. Rescue animals deserve better than to be taken by someone who has an emotional attachment to rescuing animals, only to have to be moved again - or euthanized - because that person is caught breaking the rules and has to abide by the consequences. I would never do that to an animal.

all depends on behavior of dogs and if the owners are responsible. ie: Noise, excrement, deportment (of dogs and owners).

I have one rescue and devote all my love and attention to the one. Over my lifetime we have had two at the same time and found that a single dog is happier than two. I think with cats, two is better than one, but dogs do better alone with the humans.

1. Always get a rescue.
2. Always spay or neuter.
3. Always use Vet services.
