Orange County Cali - rent with dogs

Hey everyone :)

Im new here! I currently live in Kentucky but in october i plan to move to OC.
I am uber excited! However worried, because I will be renting..
with 5 dogs!

is this going to be impossible or is there some hope?

I have a
chow mix (50lb) border collie mix (60lb) Hound/aussie mix (55lbs) a shih tzu and a jack russell/yorkie mix (both about 10lbs)

none of my dogs are obedience trained and i admit that the chow mix is badly behaved (were working on it!)

So, what do you think I am in for? any tips or suggestions.

i do NOT wish to rehome any of my dogs :( but i might have to
this move was totally unexpected

two of those dogs are my moms, who is disabled now and lives with me. and one is my fiance's. and two are mine.

Are any of your dogs Emotional support animals ??? If you or your mom are disabled and your Dr has reccomended a support animal ( all you need is a letter on letter head or prescrition pad ) then you are exempt from any no pet policies and cannot be charged pet fees. That was the ONLY thing that saved me when I had to rent an apt a couple years ago!!
yes, i am probably looking for a house to rent.
one of the five dogs is on deaths door. poor thing is 17 years old and i am not expecting her to live much longer. so that would bring me down to 4 dogs.
and one of those i got from a friend who rescues dogs, and this dog can always come back to her. she assured me that abby will always have a home with her.

which would put me at three dogs...
two over 55lbs and one about 10lbs.
maybe that number is more do-able.


i wonder how to get my moms dr to recommend an emotional support animal. mom is schizophrenic which is why she is disabled.
It is actually not hard. For one make a note of how the pet helps your mothers disability and talk to the Dr about it. All you need is the Dr to write a note on either his letter head or a prescription pad. Look up the americans with disabilties fair housing act and it gives you more information.
