Hello,

Well I have finally decided to make the big (2600 mile) move from cold and snowy Vermont to the warm & sunny climate of Scottsdale, AZ.

While the thought of making the practically cross-country trip isn't daunting enough I am finding that most, if not all of the apartment complexes that have been recommended to me for housing will not allow an english bull terrier, they're on the breed restricted list.

It is not a choice for me to leave my dog behind. She goes with me or I don't go.

Can anyone recommend housing that will allow my beloved dog to come with me in the greater Scottsdale/Cave Creek area?

Thanks!

Have you thought about a house rental? Could you get your local veterinarian to sign a letter describing the breed? (mascots for a bulls-eye store and beer)?

We rented a house (in Scottsdale) and have two dogs. We were never asked their breed. You will certainly have better luck renting a house or condo from the owner rather than looking at apartment complexes.

So glad to hear that you and your dog are a package deal. Too many people bail on their pup when it's inconvenient. Good luck and welcome to the valley! You'll find somewhere for sure.

You'll be able to find a house that will allow dogs. A letter from your vet just in case wouldn't be a bad thing to bring along.

Also consider taking the Canine Good Citizen Test. Being able to provide a copy of the dog's certificate did wonders for us when we needed rental housing! Even hotels that normally don't take pets have allowed us in with this piece of paper during slow seasons.

I would rent a house. With the blocked in backyards it would be so much better for the 2 of you. Not having to leash up the dog to let him/her outside. Plus the dog would be free to run around in the backyard.

Ah, I thought of this later as well. This is a really good thing to have for renting, as jk suggests.
