I am looking for an apartment in bethlehem but I have a rottie (who is very well behaved and very friendly), are there any apartments in the area that allow them? Typically I know that these are on the breed restrictions list but I need a place. I also have a lab but during the day while I'm at work they would be at a doggie day camp so they would only be there when I'm home.

If you find a place please let me know also. I will be relocating up to Allentown with my job and have a doberman.

Google, "Pet friendly apartments, Allentown" or Lehigh Valley and you should get some hits. Try Craigs list too.

As a Multi-Doberman owner, I HEAR you; the ignorance is still out there. "Restricted List", my BUTT . Never Apologize or reference that list. You have two large dogs who ARE NOT HOME WITHOUT YOU. End of story. you might do better renting a house. Best of Luck!

I highly doubt you'd be able to find any complexes that would allow you to have a rottweiller. Even the pet-friendly complexes have breed restrictions and weight limits and your dog wouldn't qualify for either one. Your best bet would be to rent a house or a townhouse with a yard. Renting from someone that owns the property will give you better leverage in negotiating something like that. They may want a higher deposit though. Not that it's any of my business, but why would you want to have such a big dog into an apt without a yard? Seems impractical.

I don't know the poster's reasons, but Rottis are not the "athletes" of the working category, unlike Dobermans, Shepherds and Boxers. A nice, vigorous walk daily would suit them just fine.

When I was a landlord, I was personally attacked by a neighbor's full grown rottweiler. Took a nice chunk out of my left leg. Sure, it was most likely mistreated by the owner, but if I were renting out a place today, I would not rent to a pitbull, doberman, or rottweiler owner.

I'm sorry to hear that you had to go through that experience.

Too many people want to own dangerous breeds and they don't know how to take care of them. That ruins it for all dog owners, because I absolutely can't blame apartment owners and cities for banning certain breeds. These breeds are banned because of what they do, whether it's ultimately the owner's fault or not.

utterly foolish. tALK TO ANY VET, and see who the biters are. I've owned Dobermans for 22 years, and never had a problem. It's only ignorance that mars this breed not the breed themselves. They are NOT the WWII dogs of the 40's.

Tell that to the guy who had a chunk of his leg taken out by a Rottweiler. Now, would a cocker spaniel be able to do that kind of damage ?

Look, I know fatal dog bites are very rare. But the vast majority of such bites are made by a handfull of breeds. If apartment managers and cities want to ban such breeds, who are you to tell them they can't, just because your Dobermans haven't ever given you any problems? Actually, in terms of dangerous dogs, Dobermans are quite a bit down on the list behind Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Malamutes, Huskies, Chows and a couple of others. Dobermans just look scarier than a couple of those breeds.
