READING, Pa. —

A Pennsylvania housing development with a one dog per household rule said a family must give back a seeing eye dog they're training.

Steve and Annette Yerger's daughter was trying to earn a $1,000 college scholarship by raising Ives, a 4-month-old retriever mix, for one year. But the family already has a pet dog.

The Oak Meadows Homeowners Association in Berks County denied the family's request to keep Ives until December, when he'd return to the Seeing Eye program for the next phase of his training by professionals.

Steve Yeager said Wednesday the family doesn't want to start a legal battle that might reflect negatively on the program.

A local coordinator for the Seeing Eye training program said there is a waiting list of families wanting to raise service-dog candidates.
