Actually, she can be questioned on this, she was a victim of a scam. If they ask her what tasks they are trained to do and if she is disabled, she would not be able to answer and could be kicked out of the apartment.As for scams -
My sister moved to FL last year and the place she wanted to rent, and ultimately did rent, only allows 1 pet and she has 2. The real estate agent that helped her find the place told her that if she "registered them as service animals" (their words, not mine) then the apartment manager couldn't decline to rent to her.
I don't know the name of the business but all she had to do was pay $40 per dog and she received papers and a vest for each dog. She calls them her Service Dogs and truly believes that she can take them wherever she chooses.
I have 5 dogs and asked, if I paid $200 ($40/per dog) could I rent next to her, take my dogs to Disney, to Publix, basically wherever I wanted? She said that the business she registered hers through told her no one can stop her from taking the registered dogs anywhere she chooses to take them.
If I understand correctly, renting is a separate issue than taking your dogs to Disney or wherever, but it's a shame that businesses make those sorts of claims. I think the real estate agent is in the wrong too for telling her they would be Service Dogs.
Maybe it's an even bigger shame that people fall for the scams.
This is another point where certification does not work, we would simply see more of these scammers out there and it wouldn't accomplish anything. Bottom line is the only way to get a handle on this is to ask the legally defined questions and kick any misbehaving dogs out.
