Ever went apartment shopping and found the perfect fit to find that your beloved dog was on the restricted list.
These lists are put together by the amount of dog bites recorded to the law, according to breed. It does not matter if the bite was justified or not. Your dog could be the sweetest, loving, non-aggressive dog but be banned due to the breeds sterotype.
I believe that if the apartment management truly wanted to protect their residents they should require an aggression test to be performed by a veterinarian which can then be turned into the office. This would be a more logical solution to keeping an aggressive dog out then by sterotyping breeds and complicating something as simple as finding an apartment for local residents.
Please help me pass this around and make this known. I am sick and tired of being turned down one after another simply because I have a German Shephard. Yes, a very trainable dog and yet on most of the breed restrictioned lists around columbus. Thank you for your time and again please help me spread this around.
