Good Morning! I am relocating to St. Croix from St. Thomas and was wondering if I could get suggestions on a good location to live. I am bringing a dog with me.

are you going to be working? if so i would suggest living close to work. a commute can take up to 45 minutes one way depending on where you live and work

What size place are you looking for? I have 2 each 3 bedroom units 5 minutes and no traffic drive to the hospital.

I'm looking for a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom. The only thing is that I will be moving with my dog. He is a certified therapy dog (in the mainlands I took him to the hospital to visit patients) he is well behaved. I just noticed that many places are not really dog friendly

I am sure you experienced the 'dog friendly' rental difficulty in STT as well - it is really just a matter of -- keep looking -- some landlords will agree if they meet the dog with you - most condos are owner only pet acceptance.
Offering a 'pet deposit' is also a game changer sometimes or even extra monthly rent.
A good reference from your STT landlord may also help.
If you need outside fenced space the search will be limited -- keep looking is the mantra.

On Facebook STX VI buy and sell 24/7, they post sever places every day. Also calabash has a good online multi listing service with long term rentals. They give directions to each property so you'd be able to see your commute route to hospital if you pull up a google map of STX. Yes, we've been mapped now. Any location for easy commute would be a mid island location.

Also, I don't know law here but check into it. Maybe someone will come along who knows, but, wouldn't your "therapy dog" be excluded from pet policies? They are allowed in stores when others aren't.

Therapy dog or not, the landlord cannot be forced to rent to a tenant with an animal.

Maybe if people had quit electing democrats a while ago..

as it stands now, nothing can stop a tenant from staying with a therapy/support dog.

funniest part?

Additionally, a landlord CAN NOT ask about your physical or emotional disability as they must treat all perspective tenants the same! So, if asked, you DO NOT need to disclose your need for a Service or Emotional Support Dog.

Edit: it has to be for the tenant though, not just a random therapy dog I'd assume, but with the way the law is written, they can't even legally ask you!

A therapy dog is not a service or emotional support animal. No special accommodation rules for them. I believe the OP mentioned it because it generally indicates a well-behaved dog.
