Sounds like that vet talked someone into it and is rooking the future tenants. I might look into that farther and see how ethical that is.

I would suspect they don't have that many dogs living there. It sounds like one of those barriers set up to discourage dog owners renting there without flat-out outlawing it.

I've never heard of that before though. I have heard of apartment complexes taking a DNA sample of all dogs living there and then matching it to DNA in poop that isn't cleaned up, but that's both rare and a lot more reliable than DNA breed testing!

That's insane. I've heard of places requiring a vet to certify that the dog isn't a "dangerous" breed or mixed with one, but I've never heard of doing DNA, especially since it's not exactly the most accurate thing out there.

I've seen a purebred cocker come back as a dalmation mix. I would be interested on performing one on my own dog for the heck of it, but not for that kind of money!

I will say this, tests done through the vet tend to be a tad pricier but also a tad bit more reliable over tests that you buy at petsmart or order by mail and then ship in.
