Good luck. Pit Bulls are banned in a lot of areas here.

You can rent in Lakewood, there are tons of them. I know because my dog has been attacked by them in BelMar Park...

The problem will be finding a landlord who will accept a tenant with a dog, when there will be 20 + applicants without one.

Even in cities that don't have pit bull bans, a lot of apartment complexes won't rent to people with them.

I'm in Thornton, which has no pit bull ban, but my apartment complex still will not let that kind of dog in because the complexes insurance policy will not cover them. My personal renters insurance policy won't cover them either.

I have no issue with pit bulls, and think breed-specific bans are stupid myself. But they do make life harder when looking to rent a place.

You may not be totally out of luck, but your options are very limited. Start with looking in the areas that don't have breed bans, and then jump on anything that you see advertised. This might even include driving around and looking for "For Rent" signs. You will have much better luck if you have a job lined up, a solid credit background, and references. It's just going to be a matter of selling yourself and your dog.

Check the thread in the Denver forum titled "Colorado bound... pit bull friendly towns around Denver area?". There are six pages of comments, so maybe you can get some ideas there.

I had to tun down a guy that wanted to rent my carriage house in Golden, It really isn't that I like or don't like pits, it is, like everything a landlord does, about risk. Though I am more concerned about them attacking other animals than people for the most part.

Just a thought, have you looked into insurance polices for the dog? I may have considered the pit bull if the guy had a large policy insuring against anything it may do.

It will be an uphill battle for you thought, I have had a parade of people respond immediately each time i list a place for rent. and many have no pet at all!

good luck

IF I was a landlord and IF you (along with your pitbull) wanted to rent from me, I might let you sign the lease if you had insurance on the dog. mtdave2 gave good advise! I would hate to see an unsuspecting neighbor decide to take a walk around the block or perhaps knock on your door for whatever the reason and then have the dog go ape on them.

But I've never met a pit that gave me a scare. I'm sure you have a nice dog! Good luck!
