When I was renting with a dog (a spaniel mix, but still, lots of appartments had no dog rules), I didn't even bother with apartments. Always found nice suites in private homes that were pet friendly. Or a privately owned home set up as three individual suites for renting out. A CGC will help for sure. I moved quite a few times when I had William, and sorta mentioning in the conversation that he was a therapy dog always changed the landlord's attitude if they were hesitant.
Also, don't wait to see ads that say "pets allowed", contact the landlord yourself, and ask if a dog is okay. I've talked to landlords who never even thought about pets either way, and hesitated for a moment, which gave me an opening to sell them on my perfect dog. It was a lot of work each time I moved, but I always found affordable places that worked for me where my dog was welcome.
