At our dog-friendly buildings we allow dogs that are quiet, not aggressive, and are not extremely energeticIf your dog does not meet all three of these requirements, it is not allowed to live in our apartment buildings no matter what breed it is.

Dog breeds that typically do well in apartments are:

  • Bulldogs
  • Boxers
  • Golden Retrievers
  • Greyhounds
  • Labrador Retrievers
  • Lhasa Apsos
  • Scottish Terrier
  • Shi Tzus
  • Whippets

There are several dog breeds that we do not allow because they often do not meet all of our requirements. The breeds that are not allowed include:

  • Akitas
  • American Staffordshire
  • Beagles
  • Belgian Shepherds
  • Cane Corso
  • Catahoula
  • Chihuahuas
  • Chow Chows
  • Dalmatians
  • Doberman Pinschers
  • German Shepherds
  • Great Danes
  • Huskies
  • Malamutes
  • Mastiffs
  • Miniature Pinschers
  • Old English Sheepdogs
  • Papillons
  • Pit Bulls
  • Pinschers
  • Presa Canarios
  • Rottweilers
  • Staffordshire Bull Terrier
If your dog is a mix-breed that includes one of the breeds we do not allow, it will not be allowed. If your dog’s breed is not listed above, and we are unable to verify that it will meet our requirements, then we will not allow it.
It is important to note that if your dog violates one of our requirements, you will need to find a new home for your dog. You may also choose to move, but you may owe a lease buyout fee depending on how long you have lived in the apartment.
Often, people ask why we restrict loud, aggressive, or highly energetic dogs. One reason is that our dog-friendly apartments are located in buildings filled with multiple apartments, and do not have fenced-in yards. Also, other residents living in the building may not feel comfortable around aggressive, loud, and highly energetic dogs. We recommend that people with loud, aggressive, or highly energetic dogs rent a house or an apartment that has its own access and fenced-in yard.
Accommodation animals for residents and guests are allowed, however there are additional forms that are required to be filled out before the accommodation animal is brought to the building on behalf of a resident or a guest. Accommodation animals are still required to be quiet, not aggressive, and not extremely energetic.
