    Aggressive? That is too weird. Yes, they aggressively attack the food bowl and toys...well, look out world, that is so dangerous! That person knew nothing about the breed. So sorry!

    Aww I agree with everyone's comments above, people make these rules due to ignorance and fear of bull dogs, a lot of people look at the size and shape structure of an EB, and their teeth sticking out, and they automatically think pit bull and they're vicious. They've never experienced the love and gentleness of a bully, and that's sad. I don't believe any dog is vicious or mean, it's the owners that make the dog, even a pit bull or a Doberman, or Rottweiler this way, these dogs are not vicious, they just get a bad rap due to a few stupid people, it's not the dogs fault, it's the irresponsible owners, those who don't properly train, socialize, or love their dog, and those few who for whatever reason think its cool to have an aggressive dog for fighting or other cruel reasons, and then they want to blame the fog when it bites or attacks. It's never the dogs fault. I hope you have a great interview and get the apartment. I'm sure your sweetheart Joe, will pass with flying colours. How could anyone not love that face? Good luck Hun, keep us posted on if you get the apartment. Keeping my fingers crossed for you. I remember my frustration when we were looking for a new place, and we were looking for a house rental. We were renting our last house for almost 5 years, and we got our two EB's 2 years ago, I asked my landlord first, and he was okay with it. Last September he came to us, and said his daughter was moving into the house with her family, and we had to move out by the end of December. I thought I had lots of time with 3 months, and started to look for other houses for rent, but nobody here in Canada wants to rent to dog owners. It's not so much about breed of dog, but more because again the irresponsible owners who make it bad for others by allowing their dogs to destroy people's homes. People don't want their properties chewed, their carpets peed on, and so they're not willing to allow dogs. We ended up deciding to buy a house instead, and it worked out way better, as the rents for houses ranged from $1850.00 to $2100.00 and even as high as $2400.00 a month plus utilities, and my mortgage is way lower than that, so we ended up buying our babies a house, and didn't have to worry about them not being allowed. It was a stressful process though as we only had a coup,e of months to find a realtor, arrange our mortgage with our bank, and then do the process of looking and seeing lots of houses, and also of finding a house with a closing date within our timeframe. We were very lucky everything fell into place, and we actually moved into our new house on November 30th, a month before we had to move out. I hope you find something soon.

    Breed restriction lists are silly. Cesar Millan just had a special about the bull breeds. "Love my pitbulls."

    One way to overcome objections is to really show a high level of commitment to socialization and training.

    Take him through the Canine Good Citizen classes. CGC shows that he is well socialized and lower risk around people and other dogs.

    What is it?

    Welcome to the AKCís Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program. Started in 1989, the CGC Program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.
    Many dog owners choose Canine Good Citizen training as the first step in training their dogs. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you'll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life.

    Luckily I found a house to rent ! Joe will have a big yard and I won't have to deal with any silly restrictions! Congrats on your new house! I hope to be able to buy one in the next few years.

    I did receive a survey from the complex that didn't allow bulldogs so I responded with my feelings about the bulldog restriction 😠

    I'm so happy, you found a house, this is way better than an apartment, for both you and Joe. You'll have way more room, privacy, and a yard.
