I am having trouble renting with a German Shepherd Dog. Any advice?

I have a very well behaved German Shepherd dog. Unfortunately, almost all of the apartments and rental homes I have found have weight or breed restrictions. We are currently living in a really run down house because it was the only place that would take her when we moved here from the East Coast. I have attempted to provide pet references and even offered to place an additional deposit down. Unfortunately, I'm still being turned down left and right. Does anyone have any advice?

Most home owners insurance will exclude certain breeds and German Shepherds are usually on that list. You can get renter's insurance to cover the dog. Also, put together a pet resume with information such as if the dog is fixed, licensed, temperament, obedience training, references from neighbors and landlords. Those things along with a pet deposit and even a pet rent will increase your chances of finding a new place. Best of luck to you

I agree with the other post coupled with the notion that you have to keep looking. We have a top floor condo for lease in Shoreline right now and the HOA does not restrict certain breeds from my research. If you can provide some of the details the other poster stated to prove the background of your dog, we might be able to accomodate. There are young children below the unit so the dog would have to be extremely well behaved around children. Check out the ad at: http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/apa/3027710124.html.

We live at Garden Park Apartments in Shoreline with a rotty-mix and a staffordshire bull. I know that our neighbor has a german shephard as well. No problems here...
