Clearwater Condominium Association bans dogs that weigh more than 25 pounds. When John Smith, an owner, adopted Susie Q, a goldendoodle puppy, the dog was under the weight limit. Susie Q has since grown much more than expected and now weighs 35 pounds. The board is considering making an exception to its rule, especially because Smith didn’t know how big the dog was going to get. Susie Q is friendly, well behaved and residents generally enjoy seeing the dog in the hallway and on common areas. However, the board is concerned other owners might think it’s now OK to own larger dogs in the community.
Should the Clearwater Condominium board make an exception to its dog weight-limit rule or force Smith to remove Susie Q?
