Hello, we are in the process of waiting to hear on job relocations. He'd have to commute to the financial district downtown. I have done some research. We are in our 50s, don't need schools, but I think our pet situation is going to make us have to buy. We also like diversity, and not some over controlled environment where your bushes have to be perfect or you get a fine. We have 3 cats over 10yrs each, so they mostly lay around, and 3 dogs, 2 chihuahua's (ages 10 and 5)and one old yellow dog (10). I can walk the three dogs together at once. We would like to have a small back yard or at least a place to walk them and pick up the poo.

But there seems to be a limit on the number of pets for rentals, sigh. We own our house now, so buying another would be ok, our credit is good.

I've been looking in Daly City, Pacifica, Brisbane, Alameda and South San Francisco. I would just like some other suggestions for areas for both buying and renting. And we don't care about being cool, heheh just reasonably safe.

Thanks in advance, you guys have been very helpful in the theads I've read so far.

Cheers,
Anna

Pacifica might get a little foggy but you'd be close to the ocean. There are hiking/walking trails. I've seen dogs at Linda Mar Beach very often. I don't think Pacifica has a downtown like some places, but it has some shopping areas and is not far from San Francisco.

Default poo

Well I currently live in the downtown urban area of Kansas City and I'm originally a native Austinite, the idea of not picking up your animal's poop on a walk is foreign to me. I thought most places have ordinances in place about that for health reasons. LOL bread bags are perfect for a day out. So is that a problem in the SF Area?

People who live in SF tend to violate a lot of laws and ordinances as they see fit and are generally inconsiderate. So better watch where you walk!
