I'm looking for a high-rise type building close to the beach in either Hollywood Beach or downtown FLL that allows LARGE dogs. Most that I have seen that are "pet friendly" have a 25lb weight restriction.
My budget is somewhere around $1,200 max for a nice, large studio or 1 bed apartment.

Does anyone know of any possible buildings?

Thank you!

Drive around East Hollywood and look for for rent signs. Not only will you be able to find a one bedroom cottage in a good neighborhood, it's very walkable. The highrises are downtown or on the beach, and not very practical for a large dog. The beach highrises may be out of your price range, but the new ones on Dixie and Hollywood Blvd and on north Young Circle may take a large dog, since they are no where near full ocupancy since being built a few years ago.

Thank you for the response. Are the small cottages in a relatively safe area? Could you compare it to another area in broward in terms of safety?

I live in a high rise on Hollywood Beach. While it does not allow pets of any kind there are a few people here who do have small dogs. They are not service animals but the people who have them have had their doctors say that they have to have them for mental stimulation or companionship or some such thing. Basically, they have a doctor's note saying they must have these animals. All of the people (I know of 3) that have these dogs are all elderly.
On a related note, a man I work for does a similar thing and had his doctor proclaim his shi tzu a service animal so he can get on and off planes first and the dog can travel in the plane with him.

Why would you want to restrict your large dog to a highrise apt? You would have to take him down the elevator several times a day if not more to relieve himself. Then the building would not want him crapping on their grass nor would the neighboring buildings. If you think you are going to find a nice grassy area for him on A1A you are in for a rude awakening. Now if you lived accross from the dog beach in Ft. Lauderdale then I might understand. Get yourself a small home with a backyard so the dog doesn't go nuts.A dog lover.

Yeah, you're right. I suppose I needed that reality check. That being said, where could I find a good small house in an area near other young professionals with a $1,200 budget?

Having lived in Hollywood, I would advise against renting a home there, or at least to be very cautious about the area. With your budget, you will end up west of Dixie - some blocks can be pretty sketchy. There is a nice dog park in Hollywood, Poinciana Park.

I've seen small homes and townhomes in the Tarpon Bend and Croissant Park areas of Fort Lauderdale in that general price range. This area of Fort Lauderdale is up and coming, and close to downtown Fort Lauderdale. The dog park at Snyder Park is close by, which is another plus.

Coral Ridge and Lauderdale by the Sea offer some duplexes that have small yards and many landlords accept large dogs. You should just drive around these neighborhoods and look for signs, and check Craigslist.
