I'm currently living in Colorado, and am moving into the Salt Lake City area around mid-October. I need to find a (safe) place to live for no more than $700 a month that will allow me to keep my pit, as I am not giving him up. I am also open to renting homes, but I've been browsing craigslist for a couple weeks and a lot of places don't like pets period, or have restrictions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am visiting Salt Lake next month and my boyfriend and I are going to start checking places out. I'm hoping to find places by then to look at.

I wish you a LOT of luck. Pit bulls have a horrible reputation in the metro areas of Northern Utah. Many children and even adults have been harmed by individuals that have left them either not tied up or supervised. I know it's how you raise the dog, but honestly I suspect most landlords won't want the added liability involved, and no doubt neighbors won't be too excited to have them nearby. Just the way it is around here. It's not been a good run for the pits.......

I am willing to live a bit farther out if necessary, but preferably not more than 15 miles as my boyfriend wants to be close to his family. It is unfortunate that they have such a bad rap as they are fantastic dogs, but I knew when I got this dog that moving with one would be difficult. I wouldn't want any other kind of dog though.

Yes, they are fantastic dogs. My brother and his family have one and my mom, dad and youngest brother have one of her sons. They are both the sweetest, most gentle dogs! I would suggest renting from a private owner as opposed to in a complex someplace.

You can check on the classified ads on KSL.com under the homes section, then narrow down the search for rent. I doubt most of them would say specifically that pitties are ok, but once you find one that says ok for pets, you can email/call and go from there. There are several cities in Utah that has a ban on pitties (DON'T GET ME STARTED), I believe South Jordan is one of them, but don't quote me on it. I live in Tooele County and they are ok here!

Although Tooele County is more than 15 miles out, it is mostly a rural area and the drive to Salt Lake is really no problem at all.

Lotsa luck. When we moved here last year we planned on renting first until we could sell our CA place. We have 2 100 pound dogs. One a lab/pit mix, and the other a rottie. We had NO luck finding a rental. In the end, we just went ahead and bought here first and then sold the CA place.

You should not have a pit bull if you aren't already a home owner.

Why should I not have a pit if I'm not a home owner? I find that stupid, since that's one of the reasons why I couldn't adopt from one shelter and they have sooo many pit bulls there, some of which have been there for over 6 months. He will be getting daily exercise, obedience training, and lots of love and care. I go for hikes and walks. I probably won't be owning a home for another 10+ years. How many people these days can afford a nice home?

And as I said, I'm open to the idea of renting homes so he can have a backyard since this is NOT a state I'm going to be living in forever.

Like seriously, what does it matter if I don't own my home yet? Either way, if I had my own home or not, he'd be sleeping in-doors at night, wouldn't be inside most of the day since I can't stand being inside all day, and would have consistent training. So I don't wanna hear it.


As for everyone else that's been wishing me luck and offering advice, I appreciate it! I will look into other counties and cities that don't have a ban on these dogs that aren't too far from Salt Lake.

Salt Lake City does not have a breed ban. I have a pittie.

i have a pit bull mix down in utah county. there are ordinances against them in some towns, springville for example, but not everywhere. i did wait until i became a house owner to adopt ours, but i would have done that regardless of breed.

i therefore don't know much at all about apartment issues with them, but i do know that there are a lot of people here that understand the breed and are willing to set up pit bull playdates and stuff like that.
