I have been trying to read through forums and search the internet about my relocation questions... Seems to be this is the place to to go. My significant other and I will be relocating to Texas by the end of October 09 no later than Nov. 1. Here are some questions I have... We are trying to find a rental house, apartment, duplex, whatever we can find for no more than $800 a month. Here is the BIG problem I am running into... I have a rottweiler and cannot find a place that would allow me to have her? My partner will be working an 8-5 job in Bedford, Texas (so we would like to try to stay in that area or somewhere close...not a lot of traffic or long distance driving).. I looked in Bedford, seems to be a bit pricey for our what we are looking to spend. I have 2 jobs lined up when I get out there.. I will be working in a vet office in Hurst and the other job is located in the Fort Worth area (west).. is the commute traffic bad there?? The job is inside an airport I believe.. Just wanted to get some thoughts on that... If anybody knows of a good rental property management that would be great also. We are trying to find some something with at least 3 bedrooms and a garage if possible... North Richland Hills looks like a good area?? I am also open to living in the ARlington area just have know idea where to begin or look..... Also, how is the DART and fort worth commuter train?? Are the pick up/drop off areas easy to get to!? or decent housing accomodations relatively close..like i could walk there?? I know arlington does not have public transit, so I would have to drive... just need to know safe place to live, relatively cheap, dog friendly (sepcially for the my rottie), 3 bedrooms at least, garage if possible, and fenced yard?? Can anybody help? Thank you

Ask your soon-to-be vet employer where they suggest. Also, frequently many private owners are a lot more understanding about dogs than property managers. If you can, drive around and look for "for rent" signs. Many people do not advertise as they don't want hundreds of lookie-loo calls that have no real interest in renting the place.

I do agree... a private rental would be easier to convince. Even the ones that say no Vicious Breeds are worth calling and talking to. See if they're willing to meet your pet before ruling you out. If you can't find anything that way, maybe try searching for housing closer to $500. Then when they require a 200 - 300 monthly fee on top of rent, you'll still be secure. I've seen quite a few during my searches that will take "vicious breeds" with a dog interview and additional rent and deposits. However, the jump from $800 rent to $500 can put you in some pretty nasty spots as far as crime. So chose wisely and do a LOT of research. Just because it looks nice, doesn't mean your experience there will be nice. I really wish I remembered the names of some of the units I saw. I hope you and your Rottie find a great home!

I think you can find something here in that price range. Don't forget craigslist as they have a lot of property rentals etc and you can ask about the dog. Its a big area and if you can, I would come and check it out first.

DART is in Dallas -- not FTW
FTW has bus service and there is rail shuttle from downtown FTW across to downtown Dallas and limited access to DFW airport--FTW has bus transit system but areas like Bedford and Hurst don't
