Default Breed Restriction

Hey there all,

I was wondering if you guys have any advice. I have lots of experience raising GSDs, my family raised them as guide dogs for 9 years. As such, I settled on getting a Shiloh Shepherd myself, but my apartment bans restricted breeds, and "dogs that look like these breeds". I'm waiting for the rep to get back to me. If they say no, we'll move. Do you have any advice about this at all?? What can I do?

Nothing. This is an insurance issue. They have insurance and are liable if your dog ever gets out and bites someone. So the insurance company has a list of dogs that they won't insure and the GSD tends to be on that list. Usually they won't make exceptions (except for service dogs) because if they make one exception, they have to make all exceptions and then they don't really become exceptions.

Your best bet is to move somewhere that does allow GSDs, but this might be difficult when it comes to apartments depending on your area.

I think moving is your only choice. At least this way you're going to have enough time to find a decent place that will accept the breed you want - rather than if you break the rules and then get an eviction notice.

OH we would never break the rules... If we did they could kick us out and the dog would suffer. We can find a new place. The litter I'm waiting for doesn't arrive until after our lease is up anyway.

Your better off renting a privately owned home. I have 2 Shilohs and technically they are a "mixed breed".

I just talked to the people across the street and they said they would take it since it's not specifically on the list. Facepalm. How silly this all is! I said it looks.the same, they said they'd take it. Lol

Some insurance companies will allow restricted breeds if they get their CGC certification by a certain age or in a certain time frame. It can change from company to company. While not something to depend on, it's something to think about.

I ran across two complexes last time I was hunting that did this exception. One would allow the breed if it was at least one year and was either already titled or was enrolled in a class before the lease started and earned the title by the end of the class. The other would allow the breed as long as puppies were titled by 8 months and dogs older than 8 months were titled within six weeks of moving in.
