Finding a place to rent with a pit

April 17, 2009 | By Sabricent | 6 comments

My pit mix, Squishy!

I find breed restrictions on pits to be extremely frustrating. I am lucky that my pit mix can pass most landlords without them knowing. I also have been turned away for owning a German Sheppard mix as well.

These are my ideal dogs in every sense, personality, size, temperment and just all around cuteness. I am really concerned about adopting one as my next pet because I'm not a homeowner (and it's hard to get home insurance anyway with one) and I'm afraid I won't be able to find a place to live.

Anyone else have issues being a pitbull owner and trying to find a place to live??

There are a few breeds you might get the dog to pass as, maybe Boxer, Mastiff (not sure they'll let those in), or just say a mutt. I guess it depends on how pit the dog is and how stern the owners are. Also putting up a 'housing wanted' ad on craigslist, explaining your situation might help. Good luck!!!

I have Allstate for insurance and have pits for over 5 years. Also, if you are renting, try going to either a condo complex that also rents, or sub-letting a condo. When I used to own a condo, pets were allowed and there were no breed restrictions, even if you rented your place out. Good luck! :)
