Difficult Situation- Need serious suggestions. :(

Hello, I just joined today and need some serious help/suggestions from you all.

I recently moved to Seattle, Washington and have been looking to get a doberman puppy. Finding a pup hasn't been a problem but finding a house here is. I looked up listings online and spoke to a lot of people but none of them allow doberman and other aggressive breeds; I later got to know that there is some state law that needs the renters to pay extra on insurance to let their tenants keep such dogs. I so want to get a doberman but I don's know how to find a house

It would be great help if anyone w
ith knowledge of eastside Seattle area could help.

Thanks.

Private rentals through Craigslist is usually the way to go.

Maybe try contacting the local Doberman club and see if they have any recommendations or know of members that are renters that could help. It's a long shot, but worth a try. Along that same line, contacting trainers and asking them if they work with clients that have "dangerous" breeds that live in rentals. That information might be borderline too private.

Good luck though push comes to shove you might have to decide between picking a different breed or not getting a dog until you have more permanent housing.

That is a rough situation! That is what keeps me in a small not so great house....I can have my dogs here. I have always lived in kind of "dumps" because I had a Husky in college and now I have dobermans. Only people who had "dumps" would rent to a young person with an aggressive breed dog. When I first got to IU I begged a man to rent to me. There was a foot and a half of snow on the ground and felt sorry for me and finally gave in and rented to me. The place was very small and I had to share a bathroom but I had my dog. I made a hard choice but had my dog! I rented from that man for 5 years....he like my dog so much.....he started rent to other people with dogs.

It can be very hard but it can be done....you may have to put a non refundable pet deposit down or carry insurance. Keep looking!

Cannot offer suggestions about housing, but whatever you do don't buy a puppy from Judy Mueller. She sells dobermans and. rottweilers up there. She is a real piece of work!!! Horrible, horrible breeder.

Yep, private owner rentals are the way to go. I rent a small crappy house with a friend. Our dogs are my Doberman and her cattle dog mix, who probably has husky in her and also wouldn't be allowed in a rental. Craig'sList is a good place to find housing. Just be really careful to avoid scams and never email any personal information to a landlord. We always arrange a showing and then meet the landlord there before giving any info for a lease or credit check. If they refuse to show the house or at least meet you in person beforehand, don't give them personal info.

Also, once you have the dog as a renter, you're committed to often times paying higher rents in order to keep your dog. I've had two houses sold out from under me, and a basement apartment lease not renewed because the landlord had family who wanted to move in. Rentals are not guaranteed. You need to have a backup plan in place and money to back it up if your landlord decides not to renew your lease.

I bring a resume for me and a resume for my dog while looking, too. I have vet and trainer references for myself who can tell the landlord what kind of care I give my dogs. My dog comes with his obedience and training certificates, his shot records, and I get a CGC on all my dogs. It helps show that you're responsible and committed.

Honestly though, Dobermans are extremely difficult to rent with in some areas of the country. In my area, the only people who have it worse when it comes to rentals are the pit bull people. I would be very cautious about having a Doberman as a renter, unless you're committed to spending more money on rent and being able to afford higher rents and pet fees.

As for insurance, State Farm does not breed ban. All they want to know is if your dog has a bite history. They've been wonderful.

I bolded that because it's damn sad. I've never met an aggressive Doberman in my life...I know they're out there, but there are aggressive Labs, too.

People suck.
