How to Get Rid of Fake Service Dogs – For Good.
Below you find another real story sent by a determined mom who succeed in getting a fake service pit bull dog evicted from their apartment complex, not because the mauler was Not a real service dog but due to the many lease violations by the owners (criminals will always be criminals). Another personal story about what victims are facing, and doing back, in this today’s dog infested world.
I have been fighting the idiot in my building that went and got a pit bull, and brought it into our apartments by lying about it being a service dog. Our apartments ban dogs over #30 [pounds]. When I started, there were 3 of these assholes owning a total of 4 pit bulls, and their maulers were always seen outside, breaking rules and such.
I want to share my successes, to date, to inspire others.
All of these grippers showed up within a few weeks of each other. It was like one day, a safe place for my little kids to play, the next day, 4 grippers are surrounding my apartment, and the playground.
At first I was scared, angry, and depressed. The manager said his hands were tied because they were all “service/therapy” dogs, both are legally protected in this state. He lives here too and hated it, and corporate was upset, but they had little recourse. No one was sure what to do, and the general consensus was that there would be a tragedy before the laws were changed.
I decided to fight back instead of just complaining. Here is where I am at…
Mauler owner #1- this guy and his gripper moved out about 3 weeks after I stepped up my campaign to rid the complex of these frauds. This was a “get out or we will evict you” situation.
How? LEASE VIOLATIONS- record every single one you see, and get as many people to complain as you can.
Explanation- I got enough people to complain about his pit attacking another dog (it wasn’t hurt), and that was enough to get him pushed out, even though his mauler was a “emotional support/therapy dog”. All pets must follow the rules, regardless of their status, so learn what those rules are and get a camera and pen.
Mauler Owner #2- This owner will be moving out with his precious gripper, in 2 months, when his contract is up. Management will not be renewing it. Any more complaints, he will be out even sooner. He no longer proudly struts his dog onto the playground, nor ever lets it off leash, even to pee.
How? COMPLAINTS, LEASE VIOLATIONS, NOTIFICATION OF FRAUD
Complaints- Write them up. Every. Last. Annoyance. Get your neighbors to do the same. The owner then knows people are watching, and they do not know who, as long as you haven’t made it obvious to them you are fighting them (I did).
Violations- Off leash? Barking? Leaving poop? Attacking? These (and more) are violations. This will get the dog, the person, or both, evicted if they aren’t followed.
Fraud- The management was unaware that the “Service Dog” papers he presented were simply bought off of the web. When they learned, they decided that in addition to the complaints, this meant they would not renew this renters contract (too late to evict for this reason).
What I did- I sent the management a list of all of the web sites that sell these service dog papers. I got it from a legit, disabled persons advocacy group. I also sent a few articles explaining this fraud.
Then, I contacted the business that sold this neighbor his papers. I sent them an email telling them their papers enabled a man to move a dangerous dog into apartments where they are banned. I let them know that I would be sure to name their name if anything happens because of this dog.
They sent me a nice little letter to give the management, detailing how the papers they sell do NOT make a dog a legal service dog. That they are just papers.
***I gave this to management, and now they will deny anyone presenting with papers from these web sites, and will look into other papers instead of just taking them all on face value.***
With this guy, they waived the right to kick him out over the fraud, because it was discovered too late, after they took rent a few times. No new people will get to use this lie.
Mauler owner #3- I haven’t seen either of their 2 grippers for 2 months; even though I can see their door, and they ought to be big dogs now. The mom said “They want to evict us!!!”, and ever since then, I never see them at all. No longer outside unleashed, not running on the playground, not in the parking lot.
How? COMPLAINTS, LEASE VIOLATIONS
Explanation- Persistent complaints to landlord of every little thing they do wrong, comments made directly to the mom and the kids about the dogs being unwanted here, and a few violations made these owners realize they were not appreciated. They had been parading their maulers proudly, on the playground, and letting them play unleashed. We didn’t like this, and made sure everyone knew.
I can only assume they still own them, but have no idea when they walk them (and I am home all day as a SHAM). Their lease won’t be renewed either, even though their one gripper is not fraud (the other is)- These geniuses got 2 maulers for their mentally ill 9 year old child. I am sure that is not what the therapist meant when they said a dog might be calming….
And I just got started.
This has worked because management cares, and will actually step up. It hasn’t been as fast as I would have liked, but at least it is moving in the right direction. t didn’t have to remind them about the payouts for attack lawsuits, or contact their insurance, or the other things I could have done.
I wrote up a list of what to do to get maulers out, I will send that next.
