COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- A Collier County man called WINK News to say he and another tenant got eviction notices because of their dogs.
Steve Peak said the new managers at his apartment complex, Naples 701, said the animals are on a "dangerous dog" list, and they have to go.
"I'm shocked...disappointed...enough said," said Peak.
Peak's said his rescue dog, Bella, is a 2-year-old, 45 pound boxer/pit bull mix.
Peak said he's lived at the Naples 701 apartments for seven months and has never had a problem before with the management company until the last month, when a new manager was hired. So, he doesn't understand why he's being evicted now when everything was fine.
"It's a bunch of B.S. Got a lot of people upset the girl next door is crying. The girl downstairs, who got the eviction notice, is crying...still crying," said Peak.
That girl is Sierra Ewert, who just made little playful, Peanut, a new member of her family. Peanut is a 4-month-old shepherd mix, but according to Incore Residential, he's an agressive dog.
So, Sierra also got a seven-day eviction notice to either get rid of Peanut or go and find another place to live.
"It's breaking my heart. I don't want to get rid of her. I don't plan to, so you'll be moving if you have to...I don't want to think about it right now," said Ewert.
Chantal Hayes was also threatened with an eviction notice until her vet proved her dog, Rory, was a Labrador mix, which wasn't on Incore's aggressive dog list, but she's decided to move anyway.
"I don't want to deal with it. I'm now moving jobless, but I'd much rather just get out of here. It's not a very good living situation," said Hayes.
"You can take one look at this dog and you can stick your face right in hers and she'd never do nothing but lick you," said Peak.
Peak said they have seven days to respond to the claim that they have agressive breeds, or they'll be evicted even though aggressive breeds aren't even mentioned in the lease.
We tried to talk to Incore Residential, but they declined to comment, and then kicked us off their property.
