Hello, recently my mother has been accepted to move in a new apartment
We have a bearded dragon, Harvey whose around three years old.

The apartment that were moving into is pet friendly, as it gladly accepts people with dogs and cats Into the apartment
But today my mother was informed that there was a specific rule that didn't allow lizards I to the apartment.
You can't lizards in that complex but the same complex allows cats and dogs.

I called them today and they said the reasonings for not accepting lizards are they could "get out" which I then explain that my bearded dragon HAS a cage but they said it's still now allowed.
The lady that I spoke to said she would call back if anything changed.
I'm going to keep calling then back to ask about it to hopefully speak to the person that made this rule.
But does anyone know a way to help or assist? If the rule stays then I won't be able to keep my bearded dragon, Harvey II :(

I'm sorry to hear that.
Maybe takecyout beardie in the office and let them meet him. If they see he is friendly and harmless maybe they will change their minds.
My girlfriend is in the apartment industry. I know for sure any accommodations they make for one person they have to make for all. They allow other pets. If they won't budge you might try contacting the local housing authority and lodge a complaint.

This doesn't sound right. You can explain to them that having a small reptile would be much less problem for them in terms of possible damage created by larger pets like dogs [ especially ] and cats that can tear , mess on, or claw up wood, carpet, flooring etc.

i've never come across this personally, but i know friends that live in places with the same policy. i am wondering if it is an insurance coverage issue for them because of the lights constantly being on. similar to the no aquariums policy because of the potential for water damage. no clue, just a guess.

I'll try calling them today and explain that to them, I'll keep calling them and asking about it until Monday when I visit there in person! Thank you for your suggestion!

Alright! I have a plan to visit the apartment's front office on Monday, but I think I'll just bring pictures and videos of him in his enclosure to show the people there! Thank you for this suggestions!

I talked to my girlfriend, there is a loophole you can use. If you go to any kind of doctor or nurse practitioner or shrink ect and get a statement you need an emotional support animal and your beardie is that animal, you can ask for a "reasonable accommodation" form and they can't turn you down. She has worked in the apartment industry for over 30 years and is a regional manger so she knows the in and outs of it.

is that for emotional support animals or only service animals? just a curiosity because the difference between the two came up at work this week. great thing to sort out on the first week of a new job!

Hello again! We were wondering if there was a form you have to fill out to register a pet for an emotional support pet...

I think you have to ask a doctor to fill out a statement saying it's needed, then request a "reasonable accommodation" form at the apartment community.
It's a lot of hoopla to go through i know, but it beats having to give up your beardie.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
