Charlotte NC rental housing

Good morning everyone!

I have a friend that is looking to transfer with their job to the northern side of Charlotte, NC. He needs GSD friendly housing or won't make the transfer.

Looking for a short (3-4 months) or longer (12 month) term rental. Apartment or house is OK.

I told him I'd ask here. Anyone have any ideas on no breed restriction apartments? Budget is around $1100 a month. He's looking online and calling but is coming up empty so far. He lives in PA now so visiting is a little tough but doable if there's a possible place.

No kids, no spouse so 1 bedroom or studio is ok. Dog is a 6 year old male, not neutered, well behaved, not destructive, not a barker and good with dogs & cats.

Thanks in advance!

This is old info but when I moved to Arkansas, I found a rental through a realty who also did property management. It was a challenge because I looked at several places through a couple of realtors. I found out that one had not cleared a dog with the owner before talking to me and showing me the place,but I did get one that worked out well for a year. I had photos, I had vet references, I had a list of their training. I didn't need any of it but I had it to offer.

Renting is not a favorite of mine.

I know craigslist can be sketchy, but if you have common sense you can easily weed through scams and what is legit. Iíve found multiple rentals that are dog friendly (I have a pit bull, a Doberman, and a GSD) and with those credentials if I can find a willing rental, anyone can. Tell your friend to post an ISO thread asking what what he/she needs and that they have an adult well behaved dog. If the breed doesnít come up donít push it. Iíve also offered to let potential landlords meet my dogs, which has always landed in an approval.

I second both suggestions offered.

I’m currently on my 6th craigslist rental over the past 15+ yrs, all while having at least 1 but usually 2 GSD.

Although I’ve never gone the realtor route - 3 family members who work in real estate offer both long and short term relocation rental services.... and I’ve had countless friends who have gone this route when relocating to/from other states. It’s generally a pricier option however, but convenient.

Sometimes breed rescues also have a list of properties or management companies that accept their breeds too.

There are several GS rescues in NC -- I would email them and ask if they have suggestions on breed-friendly rentals. The local city shelter might have a list too.

Our rescue does a "landlord check" any time we get an application to adopt from someone living in rental housing, and I've done my best to keep track over the years of the nice landlords who said "yes," and with their permission, I send people looking for housing to inquire whether they have vacancies. I've probably had a half dozen renters find housing this way.

There's also some new dog-friendly housing list that's been spamming me to link on the rescue's website --
