Hi LindaWelcome to Just Answer!! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you.
Unfortunately in terms of the rules you will not get around it unless you get dispensation from the body corporate. There is no legilsation that I can refer you to that overrides the position and I am of the view that you will either have to decide about the animals or have to give up the property. I know that this is not the answer you were looking for but little you can do about it in terms of the rules as you were also probably aware of the rules when you purchased the property.

Thank you JOhann,
But the property is full title , the garden doesnt belong to the complex. my dog will never goes away from my property.
I fully understand that.
If there are exceptions to be made you will need to apply through the body corporate for this.
