Hello,

I will be moving to Newberg for a job. I would prefer to rent for a year or more. Because I have a large dog (70lbs) and a cat I'm not finding many rentals in my price range in Newberg. I am starting to look at other towns. I've done some research on Sherwood, Wilsonville, Tigard, and Tualatin. I've found only a few apartments that allow dogs this size. I would prefer to keep the commute under 45 minutes by car, 30 minutes or less would be ideal. I am fine living in a large apartment community, small apartment community, or house rental. My rent max is $800 (not including utilities) but cheaper would be better. I would prefer to be north of Newberg so I'm closer to the Portland area. However, for my first year my top priority is finding a dog-friendly apartment that I can afford with a reasonable commute time. (Safe would be a huge plus too! ;-)) I'm less concerned with the size of the town or how cool it is, etc. If dog-friendly apartments didn't seem so hard to come by then I would definitely be pickier. But, beggars can't be choosers, as they say.

Any suggestions on good places to rent (apartments or just the town in general) would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I took a look on Craigslist and agree that pickings are slim. My only suggestion is to obtain a 'letter of reference' from your current landlord about their deportment and something from their Veterinarian (you will need a record of their shots in any case) that states that they are neutered. Contact the landlords and offer that documentation to demonstrate that your pets are great tenants.

Another possibility is to contact animal rescue organizations in that area to see if they can offer suggestions.

Have you looked further out towards Dundee and McMinnville? You likely won't find much in Dundee as it's a small town but some of the more rural houses for rent are less strict on their animal policies.

Dog Friendly and Apartment should not be used in the same sentence unless the dog is under 20 pounds. Do not expect to get "ANY" apartment with a dog that size. Good dog or otherwise. There are some condos, and lots of houses. Most housing that would allow a dog that size is gonna be cheep. You may not want to live there though.

google Newberg Graphic(small newspaper online) and check the classifieds. I would also check with realtors in Newberg. If you are going to be working in Newberg I would discourage you from looking into McMinville. The traffic through Dundee is horrible!!!!
