A person can legally refuse to rent an apartment to a pregnant (family status and sex), paraplegic (disability), Japanese (national origin), Ainu (race), Shinto (religion) with a pet goat ... as long as the refusal is based on discriminating between renters with or without goats. By your logic, legal discrimination has occurred, so housing "is not truly an essential right."
That is not discrimination. A goat is personal property can be gotten rid of. Walking again or converting to Hinduism is another thing entirely. Now if you were a goat worshiper or married to one the court might have to hear your argument. (this is a farcical argument purely for humor).

No civil rights are granted based on status of pet ownership.

I would not sell a gun to a person with gang tats (think MS13). Yes, I would discriminate on the basis of tattoos, which is not legally prohibited. And that discrimination would not reflect in the least on whether the RKBA is or is not an essential right.
That might very well be a wise thing to do. The tattoos might be an indicator of felonious behavior or they could be the battle scars of a lost and misguided youth. You have no way of knowing so it would be prudent.
