I've been going over the paper with a fine tooth comb looking for a place to rent. I wish we could buy, but we're just not ready. Anyway I've had no fewer than 20 people tell me no because I have (large) dogs. They don't like Stella because she's a shepherd mix and they REALLY don't like Jack because he's boxer/pit.

We're a picturesque family. Stay at home mom, professional dad, 9yo daughter and 2 dogs. What's not to love!?

I'm totally flexible as to where, and what size place. Apt, townhome, house ANYTHING, as long as they'll allow my dogs! Does anyone have any suggestions where to look? DH's first day at work should be June 16th (if nothing changes) so we're looking to move the week before. I was hoping to have something secured to put down a deposit on the 1st.

Reconnoitre "pet restrictions" oughta mean additional deposit to steam-clean carpets or protect against woodwork gittin chomped by teething puppy. This time of year at college town oughta be millions of openings. Have ye got real estate agent, better yet buyer's broker, willing to take ye under their wing? Seems bad business for realtor turning future buyer away. Y'all wantin to rent before buying makes perfect sense.

That's what I thought too! This is seriously making me cry on a daily basis. And doesn't the fact that I COMMITTED to taking care of my dogs show some sort of character or responsibility or something? I've called a ton of agents that I've found from listings online, but nothing is panning out. This is a problem I'm willing to throw some money at for an additional pet deposit, but we're really trying to lower our bills so that eventually we can BUY a house of our own.

I'm hoping a ton of stuff will open up in June, but so scared. We're supposed to move in 18 days and I still don't have anything yet.

The ironic part is that people will allow someone to live in an apartment with 5 kids who tear up everything in sight, but one dog...OH HELL NO!!!

Isn't it though! I have a nine year old and I guarentee in the 4 years I've lived in my current apt she's done WAY more damage to my carpet than these dogs have in 3 months! LOL (and they're PUPPIES!)

I've got a couple of leads and applications out, but I'm scared to get too optimistic. We did get a reprieve. We're moving on the 20th instead of the 19th so I have another week to find something.

I think I found something! It's a duplex out in Plumb Springs. That should give me enough time to get Jack certified as a Canine Good Citizen, and that should help future housing situations.

I checked out Bristow Elementary on greatschools.com and they painted a dismal picture, it it really that bad? A 4 out of 10?

The Fairways at Hearland apartment homes allows pets. Very nice complex. One, two, and three apts and townhomes.

Plumb Springs is great location, beats the southside in my opinion. Far enough away from WKU that its a genuine real community.

So glad to hear that! I can't tell you how relieved I finally was to find something.
