I’m wondering if you guys can help.
Due to recent mental health stress, I’ve been advised by my General Physician (GP) to invest time with a companion dog. I have the permission of my landlord and agent to have a pet in the apartment.
I seeked approval from my building manager – he stated that it would be ok to get the pet, and all I needed was to provide a picture of the pet and the Council Paperwork when it arrived.
I thought everything was good to go.
I researched and got the pet I thought I would be the most compatible with – a German Shepard.
I’ve bonded very well with this puppy and consider it my child.
Out of the blue I was emailed by the senior facilities manager (who is 1 rank above the building manager). Who stated that the information provided by the building manager was incorrect and I required OC approval.
I called him immediately to explain the situation and how I asked the building manager the process for adopting and what I was told. He advised me that was incorrect information and the type of dog I have will not be approved.
He’s provided me with the strata OC pet form – which I have completed, and returned.
However, he’s also stated that by keeping the puppy in my apartment, I am still breaching the by-laws – whilst the OC application is under review.
Where do I stand? Can I still keep the puppy till I hear back from OC? If they say no, can I keep the puppy till we go to mediation and NCAT?
Whats the chances of winning at NCAT?
My time with the puppy has greatly improved my mental stresses, and has been noted by my GP also. So I wish to keep her.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
