We are animal people too, so you may keep your pet but we've had experience with tenants bringing large animals that caused problems, so small animals will be allowed, they must be house trained, medium/large pets will be considered and will be charged a fee!

I am from South America, I moved to the USA nearly 20 years ago with my wife and daughter. I first lived in New York then relocated to Texas. I am a teacher, but for many years I had other houses in both North and South America, I would rent them out not for vacation but long term. Once I sold my 2 extra houses in Texas I came upon a house in Galveston, I decided to buy it and renovate it, it was terrible before I got to it. I am still a teacher, I own a vacation rental (for 4 years now), own 3 houses and 1 property in South America.
