My sister has hydrocephalus. She is 23 years old and has endured over 40 neurosurgeries. Sometimes multiple a year. This year she has been through 3. She is also married to a Marine who is deployed to Afghanistan. \n\nAs of right now she can no longer work. She simply cant stand long enough to do anything. Nor can she sit. She has to lay otherwise she gets a pounding migraine. This is due to the fact that the valve the doctors have placed to conduct her cerebral spinal fluid out is not quite right and basically dehydrates her brain when she stands. Her only friend is her pit bull. He lays with her and basically provides the companionship she does not have. He helps her in and out of bed and up and down off of the couch, basically the only places that she can go. Her doctors and the state of california recognize her dog as a service animal, but on the level of a psychological need. He is registered as a service dog.\n\nBut her apartment complex is telling her that they can breed restrict her service animal because he is a pit bull. Everything about pit bulls aside, whether you like the breed or not, have you EVER heard of anyone being able to breed restrict a service animal? If he has the proper registration with the proper authorities, it was my understanding that a service animal may not even be charged pet rent, because they aren't pets. It would be like charging someone to use a wheelchair.....any input would be great.
