Hello all, hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Looking to rent a condo / house / apt and i own a 3yr old 55lb rottweiler who is super gentle. The breed is causing issue pretty much at every single spot ive looked at.

I would prefer a nice 2br in the 1k range and central in Tampa but as my options are limited I have to see whats out there. Im also a business professional who works from home and in downtown so not looking for a frat house or anywhere shady.

Thank you in advance

Due to the owner not able to waive liability in Florida when it comes to dog bitings, etc. hardly anybody wants to take a risk and we are very well aware that not every breed considered vicious means that all the dogs are vicious...usually it is the dog owner who wants to show off and likes a mean dog and treats it bad but we are dealing with many owners and hardly any one is willing to take the risk.

On top of that comes the issue that home owners usually won't be able to insure the home with certain breeds living there...

Why don't you go nose around the doggie park and make some friends. Network a bit. This is a tough situation because Mr or Ms landlord isnt in love with your dog as much as you are. All he sees is the potential liability. Dogs bite people, dig holes , chew on things, pee and poop . They carry fleas, and ticks. This is not an attack on dogs. I think they are great, but as far as renting to a dog and his owner, you need to be around likeminded people.

In our office almost all of us are dog lovers and we allow dogs to come into our office. We had very friendly Rottweilers too, but still the liability for a home owner stays the same and we disclose this to the owners and if they are willing to rent to certain so called "vicious" labeled dogs, than that is fine with us. Currently we have 2 owners who allow it and so far not one complaint.

We did have a tenant showing us 2 Labradors and signing for 2 Labradors and we had pictures on file until we had to deal with a code violation at the property and code enforcement informed us that the fence was not as much an issue as the pitbulls....! We had him out within 1 week! Unfortunately tenants like this ruin it for others....

Thanks for the feedback, luckily through realtors I have quite a bit of options open for Rottweiler friendly places. Since I own my home im moving out of I dont have to rush or make a quick decision.

Apt wise Camden Properties has no issues at all with Rottweilers, only property I've found I'd consider moving to is a bit out all the way on hillsborough in Westchase. Cons is the price is silly, real silly compared to much nicer properties in MUCH better areas but I guess its because they arent so restricted.

Channelside - Found a few places but really dont want to live in such a loud area.

Camden properties has buildings all over the TB area.
The one you are talking about must be the one in construction on Waters St. very close to Westchase, near Montague St.
There are plenty of others , that I have seen.
