Of course they've never felt like they were in danger. Pit Bulls are among the sweetest, most disciplined dogs to own.

I am not from New Orleans but I would think you will have a hard time finding any apartments that allow dogs over 30 lbs, especially Pit Bulls. Because of the unwarranted stigma attached to the three breeds commonly called Pit Bulls, most apartment and condo developments will have strict rules against them. Just remember, it doesn't matter how well you know your dog... people who are opposed to them will not take that into consideration. They see the breed, whether it be AMSTAFF, APBT, etc and think "bad."

Good luck... I really hope you find something.

I think you would have an easier time renting a house through a real estate agency.... that's what I did, and the agent can assist you with finding a house that will accept your pet.
I have one LARGE dog, a Great Dane (which is hard to get accepted) and a pit bull mix (once again, hard to get accepted), and the company worked with me and found me a great place that I love... Plus, I have a yard, and am close to all major expressways...
So just check out local real estate agencies for "rental properties".

Default contact ARNO

Contact a group called Animal Rescue New Orleans (ARNO). They have a website: animalrescueneworleans.org. (note it's ORG, not .com)
They are the best animal group in the area. If you can't get ahold of them, contact me back and I'll help you.

I have learned that the easiest way to get by with a breed that has a social stigma associated with it is to use the "mixed" portion of the breed to your advantage. People are more naive than you may think and if you tell them that you have a lab mix instead of a pit bull mix, who's to say they A) won't believe you and B) can prove otherwise. Discrimination isn't tolerated in most places so at least you'll have them wondering if they're being ethical.

Good luck! I'll be going through this myself in either Houston, Boston or Denver in May of 09.

I've seen pits (and rottweilers, too) surprise their owners by breaking free and taking off after a person or another dog. In fact, it happened in my neighborhood just last week when a teen boy came with his pit to visit a girl several doors down. It was ugly.

The problem with naturally aggressive dogs is that the owners simply cannot afford one single mistake. Not one. And the first time that an owner finds him/herself in an unexpected situation, the landlord-owner is responsible.

Punish the deed. Not the breed.

MODERATOR: We're off topic - they are asking for help locating living quarters, not personal views on the dog. Help or let it go. This isn't going into the pit bull debate. Thank you.
