Default Dog friendly landloards/apartments in Evansville, IN?

Hello everyone,

I am looking at the possibility of relocation to Evansville in the near future and need to find a place to rent, until I get settled and can start looking to buy a home, where I can have a large rottie mix dog. I have excellent rental references from multiple locations going back to 2000 when I got him as a puppy.

As I have relocated for school several times since then, I have typically found places that are privately owned and non-commercial more receptive to pet owners providing they have good references. Also, I would much prefer renting a house, duplex, or townhome over an appartment but certainly want to know of apartments in case there are no other readily available options.

Any information you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated. Getting rid of the dog is not an option, so again, thank you in advance.

Jason

My advice would be to find apartment complexes allowing dogs by way of the internet and then most important of all, do not say the dog is a rottie mix. Simply say mixed breed and leave it at that. Landlords are more and more banning so called dangerous breeds because of insurance rates, if they can find a policy to cover so called dangerous breeds, liability if the dog bites someone there on the premises, and the gig cost of dog bite insurance. So, from now on, your dog is a mix, no idea what it is, and make sure that is what you tell the next vet, too,, when it comes time for vaccinations in case landlords want to see proof of vaccines. That is my best advice. I am an advocate for the so called dangerous breeds, and I myself do not agree with the list that insurers have made up. My favorite breed dog is the rottweiler, and I have no doubt that you have a great dog there, and I wish you the best in your relocation.

Thanks,

I appreciate the advice and while I have done an internet search and certainly plan to do more of it, my experience in having done several relocations with the dog now is that the dog owners who live in the area all seem to find the places that allow pets. I figured that this was a good resource to tap into.

As for not mentioning that my dog is a rottie. First of all, it is quite obvious when you see him and secondly, I have been down that road before, (not saying he wasn't a rottie, it just never came up in conversation and I wasn't very forthcoming ). When that happened, I had just moved 1000 miles and was forced to re-move to another apartment 48 hours after i had just moved in the old one. I appreciate where you are coming from but I am not taking that path again.

I always manage to find a decent place eventually, I just thought that this forum might shorted the search by getting some input from local dog owners. I have excellent rental references from several private and two large commercial landlords, so once I find a maybe or two, I am usually able to convince them.

Thanks again for your comments!

JW--you will have no trouble finding a nice rental home that allows dogs. I agree that not mentioning a rottie may be prudent, but nothing to worry over. You will find our city very friendly. I returned to Evansville from Sarasota Fla just two years ago and am so very glad I did! Crime is low and development high. Try "realtor.com" and put in Evansville Indiana for houses for sale on our multi-list here. Zips 47715, 47630 and 47712 are good areas. Good Luck, let me know if you need more help.
