Can I get into trouble for registering a dog as an emotional support animal?

Bethlehem, PA |

I want to rescue a dog from a local shelter but my landlord won't allow me to have it even though multiple other neighbors have animals. I offered to pay 3x more than the deposit required by the lease agreement but it requires the landlord's approval, which he won't give. So, I know that the law protects people with disabilities as well as their service animals. Since I have a history of diagnosable anxiety, can I adopt the dog, register it as an emotional support animal and avoid any legal troubles?
