In my Minneapolis condo association it's prohibited to have dogs. Even if I would find place where I could keep the dog, in Minneapolis, I would have to buy license for my dog and renew this license every year. It’s the Law. Minneapolis requires dogs, cats, ferrets, and rabbits to be licensed (Minneapolis Ordinance 64.10 and 65.10).
If you are not obedient, your neighbors (in US) will call police, city hall, management company, animal control office, whatnot and will make sure that you'll get busted.
With every passing year, every day, I find more and more reasons to love and cherish Ecuador and Ecuadorians. Frankly, I think, they don't even know how lucky they are.
Rental in Quito, for tourists and expats.
