Hi I'm a recently divorced woman who owns 2 large dogs and am looking to rent an apt/condo somewhere in Ft. Lauderdale. I work in Plantation and would like a nice, safe place where I could walk my dogs nearby. Places near the beach look intriguing, but I am open to anything. I have lived in the area for quite a few years. I'm just not quite sure how to start a dog friendly search. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

You will probably have to rent a private home.

You gonna have to research a lot on all the real estate websites (vis a vis Realtor . com, Zillow, HotPads, Trulia, Keyes, etc.), because the number apt. complexes that'll accept 2 large dogs is small, especially in more urban/dense areas. A townhouse, or a private home like Momma_bear said, are good options.

I own a dog and he is a "restricted breed" at many high rises, so I went through a privately owned apartment unit. You'll have to look a little harder than the general complexes, but by going with a private owner I dodged dog fees and the pet deposit. I had better luck getting out and walking through neighborhoods to find pet-friendly properties that weren't advertised online. Much better this way! Set aside a day and hit a neighborhood you like, and start calling! Of course, you could also call a Fort Lauderdale real estate professional and see if they could help too, just be sure to give them breed/weight specifications!

Good luck!
Jenn
