@SincerelyShe:  I would arm yourself w. the info on what the ACK/UKC say about the particular breed.

I don’t know much about dogs, but is there a reason they restrict terriers? Like is yours smaller or anything by chance? Just come up w. a good argument for when you do phone. Like how your breed is different than standard terriers or whatever.

If they say no, it’s better than already living there and having to deal w. this stuff.

They are probably referring to pitbull terriers.

I probably wouldn’t say anything about it. There’s no reason they shouldn’t allow small terriers and I doubt they will ask or care. Any apartments I’ve lived in, I just write down my dog’s breed mix and that’s that. She’s a chihuahua mix too, which some people dislike.

It’s difficult and expensive to evict someone. If it were me, i’d move in and plead forgiveness later. Unless your dog attacks someone, they likely aren’t going to feel that it is worth making a stink over.

99% sure they’re referring to pitbull terriers and not the smaller type of terriers.

Our apartment bans several breeds, among them are huskies and german shepherds. Long story short, we ended up with a husky/german shepherd mix and were terrified the apartment complex was going to tell us we had to get rid of him. We had to submit a copy of his rabies paperwork and a picture of him (he looks exactly like a husky) and they just talked about how cute our dog looked and did not care at all about his breed. Maybe this apartment is pretty laid back too. Good luck!

Yeah, I’d agree that it’s probably APBT and the other “bully” breeds – staffordshire terrier, bull terrier, etc.

Like you said Boston Terriers are really only considered terriers in name. I don’t really have any suggestions besides what PPs have said about arming yourself with that information. I probably would minimize it as much as possible unless they raise an issue. As a Boston owner I wish you the best of luck! They are the best dogs 🙂

As an apt manager, and pittie terrier owner, I can tell you that you have nothing to worry about.  They put this blanket statement on terriers because many pit bull, doberman, rottweiler owners try to pass their dogs off as various terriers in order to have them in apts. Your Boston terrier will be a welcome addition to the community! Relax the rest of weekend and commence with envisioning yourself in your new home!!!!

By The Way, Ive worked in NY, NC, VA, and Fl with company offices in MN, CA and TX so Im 90% sure even if youre not in one of these states the same still applies.

If you were really worried about it you could also just put “Boston” under breed.  But I don’t think it will be an issue at all.  Boston’s are great dogs!
