Does anyone know the rights of a disabled person with a companion dog/pet?

Or where I can find this information? I am looking for liability insurance for my companion dog to be able to rent because he is boxer & pitt bull mix. I relocated up north and am blessed to be renting a room from a friend on a tempoary basis untill I can find a place of my own. When the "owner" of the house found out Tango was part pitt bull he snapped and said I could stay but Tango had to go. He didn't want to see the doctor note or anything. He did not care one bit why this dog was so importante to me and my well being. He say's his homeowners insurance is going up to $20,000.000.00 to keep tango on the property. Tango never goes anywhere without me. Not even if the front door is wide open. If you know of anything that is the law and is regarding companion pets please send to me via zootoo. Thank you for your help, Debbie and Tango

Um I am sorry I don't but I am disabled myself and my whole life is about kids, animals and writting and reading as well as giving ideas and advice. I can tell you I have never had any problems though none of my dogs have never been pitt bulls or service dogs. I would search on google, I would also calmly talk to the owner and tell him that it is a myth that pitt bulls are all bad and visous also you could call the cops on him because I do know that this is something that is illegal. I hope this helps good luck and I am sorry that he did this to you and Tango and your kitty. Tango looks very sweet by the way.
