Can a person who has had a kidney transplant in the last 4-5years own a pet dog?

my bf's dad said he is not allowed due to the kidney transplant. he cannot have any pets. but i am skeptical bc i am an animal lover and i will find the truth...so please help me prove them wrong bc i am in desperate need of a puppy. he has gotten a kidney transplant about 4-5yrs ago, his wife was his donor and he is currently on a lot of medication and has diabetes type 1 (or which ever it is that he injects insulin). he is 51yrs old. and his wife doesn't like dogs nor cats...and she told me they CAN'T have them bc of his transplant and his disease. if you are able to help me prove them wrong i would need scientific articles written by scholars...thank you.
