Would like to hear from apt managers on large breed dog rejection
I have a large breed dog. I am having a heck of a time finding affordable housing because of this. Ever since the San Francisco mauling, large breed dogs have been written off as dangerous or hard ot handle. Yet some of the most gentle easy going dogs are large breed dogs. Great Danes, St. Bernards and Leonbergers are basically mobile couches!! Yet there are some pitt bull mixes and other yappy terrier sorts which weigh under 40 pounds and are so out of control and could be deemed dangerous. Whats the reason? Geez, my friends Chihuahuas are more likely to run after someone than my E.B.Mastiff mix!!! Is it because the Preso Canarios were large breed dogs and therefore people think they are less easy to control than a small dog. I think this is backwards thinking and I just dont get it. My dog is well trained, well behaved, and really mellow since blowing all the ligaments in his back legs, yet we are constantly turned down, it always comes down to the size of my dog!!
