Can an apartment refuse to accept my service dog as a pet because of the breed restrictions that apartment has?
I have a pit bull that is a registered service dog. The apartments that I cam getting ready to move into do not allow aggressive breeds, would they have the legal rights to refuse to allow my dog in the home?
I'd take the approach that your dog's breed is, effectively, "Service Dog." Service dogs are permitted in many, many places where no other dogs are allowed. And I'm sure that if your service dog was trained by a reputable organization, your dog's disposition and training make him no more a threat than any other service dog.
More importantly, you have a service dog because you have some sort of medical or physical condition that requires this, whether you are hearing impaired, epileptic, whatever. Because of that condition or that history of treatment for a condition, you are protected by several different laws, and discriminating against you because of your service dog is discriminating against you because of your condition, and it's illegal. If it happens, find an attorney familiar with the Fair Housing Act and the Americans With Disabilities Act.
