In my Chapel Hill neighborhood seems like everybody has a dog but we all pick up after them which causes no hurt feelings. No dogs running loose or being tethered. Also very risky to let small dogs or cats out alone at all due to coyote problems.

Huh, wow. I guess I'm just nave. I've only lived in Iowa and North Carolina and had no problems when I was in Iowa (my dogs were in their 2 weeks to 1 year old period, and landlords are generally wary about renting to dogs that might relieve themselves inside the house) and had no problems when I moved to Chapel Hill either.

Last year though when we were looking to move from one rental unit on Mordecai to another rental unit on Mordecai, the lady who owned place 2 refused to rent to me because of my "big dogs". I'm not sure this lady knew what the hell she was talking about: I have 2 Australian shepherds. They are 48lbs each. If that's a big dog, I want to see her face when she encounters a great dane / rottweiler / pit bull / malamute / lab / etc.

I was pretty pissed off at that so I went and bought a house. By the time we closed on the new house and moved, I noted that her place still had the For Rent sign outside.

look at the rental forum and you will see most landlords would rather have empty units than rent to people with dogs- of any size. I love dogs and have always had at least one or two but as a landlord I am all too familiar with problerms dogs cause in rental units. Other tenants complain about messes, noise, etc and many times there is damage. It's just not worth the hassle. You were smart to buy a house.
