Owner Can Deny Resident's Accommodation Request
Facts: A Section 8 resident’s son and his dog lived with the resident. The dog never attacked another person or pet, but it did display aggressive behavior towards other dogs and people—including lunging, flaring up, rearing on its hind feet, and baring its teeth. In addition, the dog often went “crazy” when other residents or dogs passed by the resident’s apartment. The resident told a neighbor that the dog was trained as a guard dog, and she asked another neighbor to adjust her dog’s walk schedule to avoid her dog.
