All good advice. Thanks. I didn't have my phone on me- didn't think I needed it, but now I will keep it on me for this very reason.
There are a lot of great people in this complex, as usually the case, a few bad apples can spoil the bushel.
It's not just the complex. We see it everywhere we go- no "aggressive" breeds allowed at restaurants, the people crossing the street observation and staring and telling us we shouldn't have an "aggressive" dog happens whenever we're out and about. Other GSD owners in Austin have experienced similar circumstances. You know it's bad when pit bulls have a better reputation than German Shepherds here.
The same thing happened at the last complex which is why we moved out. People were shaming us for having a Shepherd. Mind you, three weeks before we moved in at the old apartment building, a pit literally decapitated a Yorkie.
We would so desperately like to live in a duplex or rental, but there are about 35 reasons why we're in an apartment complex. Again, most people at this complex are genuine, kind folks, all the way down the old lady that drives me crazy because she feeds the feral cats by putting cat food under her PT Cruiser. This crazy guy, and then one other person at the complex are the ones that are ruining it for the rest of us.
