I live in Florida, there is a no pet policy here. Many have pets. My question is what if I do bring my 3lb Yorkie, can they evict me.

If they enforce a no pet policy, and you get caught, absolutely. Question is, did the others get caught? What was the outcome? Was it stated in the lease, did you sign it? It sounds like the landlord doesn't care.

There are several others that have pets some have been caught and been told they would have to leave but still there and still have a pet

Sounds safe enough. The thing is, what happens if they suddenly decide to crack down, someone complains, or you get a new super. You have to chance it, and deal with the uneasiness of having to worry, having to pack it up. My opinion is it sounds ok....

Yes they probably can if you signed an agreement.

Hi! Dailynews is right! They definitely can IF you signed an agreement. A little tidbit to ease your mind.. My husband and I lived in Key West for many years with our Shepard/Lab mix. Quite a bit different than your lovely 3lbs. Yorkie! She was a puppy and full of energy! Not knowing the strict laws many landlords have in Florida, we ran into a few door stops! Literally! I am happy to say that all three of us had a fabulous 6 years there Because, our dog rarely barked, we ALWAYS pick up after her, and she got along with everyone.! Including a landlord or two! It easy to side step if you talk openly with them, show you're a responsible pet owner, Play BIG on the "Picking Up After Rule" and with her being only 3lbs., you should (I hope for both of you) find people will work with you and your pooch. Have a great time and I wish the best for you in 2012!

Ask your landlord first

No, not really, you see They have set a precedent by allowing others to knowingly keep their pets, By allowing this They have changed the rules.
Also, if They did take action against you they would have to take the same action toward the other pet owners too, and that's just not practical.
In my opinion you're safe bringing your dog.

I guess the best way to know is to consult your leasing office or the landlord first.
