|Mrcjames31||And our lease is month to month so I don't think getting out of it will be hard if it comes to that.|

|Mrcjames31||Kinda between a rock and a hard place assuming was only because she stated it would be ok to get a dog when we chose, she never said what size was inappropriate, I only should of reiterated it period.|

|s14roller||Unfortunately, assuming is never a good idea when you are in a legally binding contract to live in someone's property under set conditions. Best of luck, hope you guys can work something out.|

|Mrcjames31||I'll just ask my landlord and plead with her to let me keep my pup here if she says I can't then I'll ask to break my lease and find another place to live because I don't wanna lose my pup I guess I should of never assumed it was gonna be ok to have a GSD pup but I'm hoping she'll be understanding and allow us to keep our dog especially with her having two dogs herself.|

|Jax08||They may not state specific breeds in the lease for many reasons. The lease does say to discuss with the landlord prior to getting a dog as you stated above. It may be a case by case basis for the insurance.|

|Mrcjames31||We haven't broke our lease our landlord asked us if we had a dog upon moving in we said no, but we said we were considering getting one in the near future this was two years ago, then yesterday via text she told me that she told "new tenants" small dogs only we don't fall into that category nor did she specify in the new items involved with her insurance policy all it states is keep our back security gate and laundry room door closed and no bbqing that's it.|

When we first moved here as we were signing the lease she asked if we had a dog we said no but we were thinking about getting one in the future, and our neighbor was right there when it was said she even said she remembered it when I talked to her last regarding our situation, it's not about the lease with the dog it's what she says the insurance on the building states... Yet she never said this in the documents she sent out to all the tenants regarding her new insurance nothing involving dogs.

I'd talk to her about it...from a law perspective, unless the court finds that having rules specific against breeds is a crime (at which point a lot of insurance companies would have a lot to change), it's clearly in your lease agreement that it's up to the landlord to decide.
Also helps in these cases to strategize by putting yourself in his/her shoes and think about if they arent a dog person, what you can say to help win your cause.
Lastly, if it still doesnt work out, ask him/her about the possibility of breaking your lease to find a place that allows big dogs.
