Seeking Dallas Area Apartments That Allow GSD's

I'm currently in the planning stage of moving when my lease ends mid summer. Besides hoping to find one on a budget I am having a hellish time finding one without a breed restriction against German Shepherds.

Does anyone living in the Dallas area know of a GSD/large breed friendly apartment complex?

It's so sad that our breed is misunderstood so badly. They are truly such loving dogs, most wouldn't hurt a fly yet because of their capabilities and size are deemed somehow evil. SMH

If you haven't already, try contacting Good Shepherd Rescue North TX and North TX GSD Rescue. When I was volunteering with AGSDR they kept a list of GSD-friendly housing in the Austin area to give to people who had to rehome their dogs due to moving I wouldn't be surprised if the rescues here could help you as well.

I will be moving to Dallas within the next two years, so if you find any please post them here!

If your dog obtains a CGC, many apartments that have breed restrictions will let him in, and sometimes for free.

We are going to try to get ours this summer !

My coworker lives in Allen (just North of Dallas) and has a Golden Retrieve/German Shepherd mix at their apartments so maybe check them out if you wanted to go to that part of the metroplex......Aubrey at Twin Creeks.

I feel your pain OP, I'm looking for GSD friendly housing in my area. Breed restrictions suck, though I get why they do it.

Re. the CGC, it's a good idea but just make sure people are not mistaking that as some kind of service dog. A lot of property managers know they cannot NOT allow service dogs but don't really understand what dogs are service dogs and what dogs are pets (or support dogs or therapy dogs - which are not service dogs).

If I put Eva into bite training for shutzhund do I have to declare that to the apartment people?
