|i was only stating a fact mina, i am sorry if you took it the wrong way. and actually my dog is psychiatric service dog, you're not the only one with MI. it's just that lately it's become a trend to take untrained dogs out in public, all they have to do is get their doctor to sign a paper. i was only stating that you and your doctor should ensure you meet the ADA definition of disabled, because a lot of these fakers don't know that it's a crime to impersonate a service dog.
ESAs are exempt from pet limited or no pet housing. You can have an ESA and a pet, even if there is a pet limit(such as 1 dog/cat only) FHA says that ESAs and SDs do not count twoard the pet limit.
my main conecern is making sure that you find a place to rent that's under the FHA. You'll need to ask first, because if not you don't stand a fighting chance, because then it's their property and they don't have to allow a service dog.
my dog was an ESA before she became my SD, but I refer to her now as only a SD, because ESAs have no protection in public and little protection else where. You will have more protection under SD laws instead.
best of luck
