    So, I qualify for an emotional support animal (esa) on my college campus and I've decided to adopt since getting a puppy would be a time commitment I can't fully make(I have time for daily walks and regular training sessions, but not housetraining or socialization). My esa wouldn't need any...

    I have a lab/chihuahua/min pin mix (there's probably some other stuff mixed in there too) who is very reactive towards other dogs. He's 3 and I've had him for 2 years.

We can pass by a bunch of people and he might just look or maybe even want to play and be friendly, but all of a sudden he'll go absolutely...
