Well I saw in an earlier post by you on how much you love renters and would be excited to have a family with 3 dogs move in next door to you! ;)

You move next to me with 3-dogs and you will be fined $5/day for every dog you have over 2. If you have so much love to spread around that you need 3 dogs, then start looking for a farm.

Lol you are funny!$5 a day?!? By who? I don't understand if you dislike people moving there than why don't you move? The foley, orange beach, gulf shores areas are beautiful places for young families to relocate, not all of us are out to "trash" anything!

"Lol you are funny!$5 a day?!? By who?"

By the Homeowners Association. You need to realize that developments have to maintain their value for the good of all homeowners and they can't allow someone to run their house like a zoo. Do you walk 3-dogs on a leash and clean up after them during the walk? If so, you are quite busy. Do you have a fenced yard and clean up after them on a daily basis or do you not clean up after them and create an unpleasant odor for your neighbors? Regulations can't be made to accommodate the exceptional homeowner who doesn't 'trash' anything. Regulations have to protect homeowners from those who will 'trash' everything and if the regulation does not affect you than you should not be concerned.

As far as you getting a rental with 3-dogs, be prepared to either get a very poor rental or pay through the teeth because of your 3-dogs. Most good rentals won't even allow 3-dogs and if they do, they will most likely make you pay up-front to have the place fumigated at the end of your lease and will at least double your security deposit.

And sir that is a price I am willing to pay! But I do believe that should be left to the home owner and tenet. And as far as the $5 a day, if I did allow all that mess I would expect someone to fine me or anyone for that matter. All I asked for was advice on areas that might allow 3 pets.

Give me a break, you really need to stop being so judgemental. I thought I had an acerbic personality! You have me beat for sure. BTW, I happen to have moved here a couple years ago, I RENT, have 2 dogs, and walk them both twice a day. I pick up every single bit of poop every time. With plastic bags that are being reused. I then throw them into the dumpster on the apartment property. Does that SHOCK you?
I can understand not wanting your property value to go down nor to live in a "trashy" setting, but I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. You sound like you could use a more positive outlook.
Don't be crabby, you're at the beach!(almost)

I'd love to give people the benefit of the doubt but the statistics don't paint a very good picture when it comes to renters in single-family homes. Rental apartments and condos are another story because management takes care of the property. Yes, there are exceptions and there are good renters in single-family homes who do keep the lawn cut and edged and the shrubbery trimmed but the vast majority let the property run down because they don't have a vested interest in it and know that they will want to move on in a short time or live with the fact that the landlord will not renew the lease. I've seen neighborhoods destroyed because owners could not sell their houses and had to rent them to pay the mortgage and renters with kids and pets moved in and did nothing to keep up the property. Then the value of all of the other homes went down and people who would not otherwise ever moved were compelled to practically give their house away just to get out before the development went downhill even more. It is a vicious cycle unfortunately.

Thank you for your concern--I didn't know anyone cared. Yes, I do have friends and even some from Silver Springs.
