OMG, he’s so beautiful!  I do hope you get to keep him.  After we adopted our rescue Pom, we found out dogs weren’t allowed (we just assumed, since we already had cats).  We ended up moving because of it.  Please keep us updated!!

@FutureMrsGriffith:  I know that some places don’t like for you to have pit bulls since most people seem to think they are all horrible dogs just waiting for the prime time to rip out your throat (eyeroll- Sorry, I get heated about this because I now have two pit mixes and I love them dearly) but sometimes they treat American Bulldogs a bit different. I second what the shelter said, take pictures of him and show them to the people you’re renting from. I wouldn’t just flat out ask them if bulldogs are ok, but even mentioning the breed to some people would be an automatic no. 

When I first got my dog, I expected that I would run into trouble from my landlord (I was renting an apartment at the time) because my boy was a pit mix, but everything was fine. I was just told that he needed to be on a leash (which was the rule for all dogs at the complex) and I had to sign a paper saying that I would take care of the dog, keep him quiet and that I’d had to pay for any damages. 

Good luck! I hope everything works well for you! He’s such a handsome boy.

Ahhh he’s too cute! I’m so glad you get to adopt him! πŸ™‚ We’ve got a pit mix and she’s the sweetest thing on earth – they are so full of love, you can’t even imagine! The bully breeds get such a bad rap, but as long as you train and socialize them, they can be the most amazing pets.

A safe bet is to say…”he’s not a pit mix…he’s a boxer mix.”


Boxers have similar heads πŸ˜‰


But if he’s listed as a pit mix at the shelter/rescue, then that won’t work.

@FutureMrsGriffith:  Yay – congrats!  Fi and I put an application in for an adopted dog this weekend tooo πŸ™‚

I don’t think he looks like a pit bull, and would be willing to fight the apartment complex on that.  You’re right, people are just uneducated.  In another post, a bee said there is a test you can buy (on Amazon I think she said) that tells you what breeds are mixed into your dog, that might be worth a shot if your apartment complex starts pitching a fit.  Otherwise your vet could write you a letter.

Congrats!! He’s sooo cute!

And I would have totally melted if he’d laid his head on me and signed like he did y’all. I mean – that’s complete comfort and contentment for him!

Oh my gosh, I love that mix. I’ve never seen that before. He is a gorgeous dog! What did you name him?
