Renting an apartment in Dallas when you have pets can be difficult at times when your beloved friend is on a managements restricted breed list.  Most new apartments in Dallas have breed restriction policies.

The reasons for doing so range from resident and pet safety, to property insurance policies, to larger breeds causing damage to the grounds and apartments.

But whatever the reason a manager might have for denying your pet’s residency, we know that you love your pet and would never expect you to part with them.

Apartments with no breed restrictions and their requirements

So the obvious question is which apartments accept aggressive breeds and what are the requirements?

Well that’s where DFW Apartment Nerdz can help. There are about 85 apartments with no breed restrictions in the DFW.  The good news is that more apartments are accepting German Shepherds and Huskies.  Even better, some apartments have yards.

Apartments without breed restrictions can be found in areas such as Uptown Dallas, Las Colinas, Lake Highlands, Plano, McKinney, Lewisville, the Mid-Cities, North Ft. Worth and more.

Rents for apartments with no breed restrictions range anywhere from $875-$2300 for 1 bedroom and $1200-$2450 for 2 bedroom apartments depending on the location.

Monthly apartment pet rent can range from $15 to $25 for 1 pet and $25 to $50 for 2 pets.

And then there is the deposit.  Gasp!  As a rule of thumb I would suggest allowing for $400-$600 for the deposit.  A portion of that deposit is normally considered refundable.  But for anyone who has rented before we know how that sometimes goes.

What to expect when visiting no breed restriction apartments

You should bring your pet’s vet records with you when you visit.  You may also need to plan for a pet interview prior to leasing.  A pet interview is a super quick meet and greet with the staff to ensure that your pet shows no aggressive tendencies.

Most Dallas apartments that accept all dog breeds offer pet parks onsite, pet waste stations, and pet wash stations.

We have several apartments on our website that don’t have breed restrictions or who accept certain commonly restricted breeds.
