    Default A "vicious breed" ?

    I am looking for an apartment or house to rent and have been informed by SEVERAL renting agancies that is against the law for them to rent to me in the state in which I live, because Max is a "vicious breed" and would be a danger to neighbors and renters. I'm submitting these photos as proof of viciousness. Frightening, isn't he?

    I'm very scared ......... I don't think I will sleep tonight. Probably be haunted by images of extreme cuddliness!!!


    BTW .... go digging ... and make sure that your state does in fact consider english bulldogs a "vicious breed"!!!

    Sadly, breed bans are becoming more common with rental property due to the insurance side of things. Somewhere here in Georgia, some folks fought a Pit Bull breed ban for the county and won with a ruling of something to the nature that Pit Bulls are technically not a pure breed and are exempt from breed bans. This was several, several months back, so I don't recall the exact verbiage.

    It's an old statistic, but several years ago, I believe Retrievers topped the list of dog bites reported. You may want to look into digging up more recent information like this if you plan on fighting it. Good luck!

    Check with the local city hall - NOT THE REALTOR - to find out about local dog laws and if any breed-specific measures are in place or are being considered. The realtor's probably don't even know the difference of one breed from another.

    Your pics are adorable!

    I just did a bit of research n the only wv laws I found pertaining to breed specific legislation was on pit bulls which I love as well!!!! I seriously think ppl only hear "bull" n automatically assume it's a "pit" bull not a bull "dog"!!!!!!! Honestly my sister hates pit bulls says shes petrified of them so we were walking one day I saw one asked if we could pet her, owner said yes so we did and my sister loved her!!!!! Right b4 we walked away I asked if she was pure pit or mixed n the lady replied pure and my sisters jaw hit the ground!!!! Sadly 3/4 of ppl who r "terrified" of pit bulls don't even know what an actual pit looks like!!!!!! So now that I've rambled about my second favorite breed of dog lol ur boy is so scary I'm shaking in my boots he's adorable n looks very cuddly good luck with ur search!!!!!

    I have checked local and state statutues. It seems to be more about the insurance that realty companies must carry, and therein the language is written so broadly it includes all breeds with "bulldog" in the name...even Frenchies.

    Ahhhh and most "legislation" has pit bulls listed as "pit bull dogs" makes sense now but it's not fair to any dog really it's almost like racial profiling!!!!!

    Max is reading up on the laws. Poor little dear, I don't have the heart to tell him that's not the right book.
