    Dogs can be a wonderful part of our lives, and it sounds like your schnauzer is an important part of yours. I've reviewed The Delta Society's information about service animals in housing, and although it indicates "that it is HUD's position that no deposit may be charged for the service animal" it is not clear whether this applies in all housing markets or just those regulated by HUD. 

    I encourage you to call one of the following resources for more information:
    • Pet Partners offers information about service animals and may have an answer to your question: 425-679-5500.
       
    • The Office of Housing and Urban Development has a Counseling & Referral line for questions about HUD programs, including Fair Housing: 800-569-4287.
    I hope you're able to find a solution quickly!
