you fight it tooth and nail, get a lawyer, and then start looking for another place to live JUST IN CASE.. if everyone on the association vetos your dog you will either have to get rid of him or move.... it will be a long hard battle... what you can do is show your dog is a good citizen, get the cgc title on him, therapy title, anything possible.. hopefully chance is old enough.. if not, then fight it tooth and nail... send an email to email@example.com
