Looking for apartments that have no pit bull restrictions in the North Phoenix, Deer Valley, Desert Ridge area. Can be from Interstate 51 on the east side to both sides of the I17 and 101 corridors.

I definitely second looking into renting a house. The challenging part is finding a landlord who will accept the dog. Our landlords prohibit any of the bully breeds due to their homeowner's insurance specifications supposedly.

Best of luck to you.

Yup, if I was a homeowner renting a house I sure wouldn't take you as a tenant if you owned a pit bull. Nothing against the breed, just a purely financial decision based on how home insurance works.

Good luck man.

"Temperament is not the issue, nor is it even relevant. What is relevant is actuarial risk. If almost any other dog has a bad moment, someone may get bitten, but will not be maimed for life or killed, and the actuarial risk is accordingly reasonable. If a pit bull terrier has a bad moment, often someone is maimed or killed—and that has now created off-the-chart actuarial risk, for which the dogs as well as their victims are paying the price."

So if a particular breed of dog doesn't truly have any unique characteristics that set it apart from other breeds (ie. being more aggressive than another breeds), and all of their behavior is a product of their training and how they were raised... Does that mean that all those small yappy little dogs run around and bark all the time only do so because they were trained to do that?

I couldn't care less, you don't matter.

mod interpose: As is characteristic of all pit bull threads on this forum, this has turned into a thread full of personal attacks and actually off topic for the local forum. There are many pit bull discussions in both the Pets/Dogs forum and the P&OC forum. This thread got off topic right off the bat and now has really nothing to specifically to do with the Phoenix area. OP, if your question has not been answered, please contact a moderator.
