Definition of a Dangerous Breed Dog

Generally speaking, the decision to accept pets and what kind of pets is the prerogative of the Owner, however, the Broker reserves the right to limit their exposure to liability related to leasing to Tenants with dangerous breed dogs. The Broker will not execute a Lease with a Tenant who has a pet that is a dangerous breed dog. It is the Broker’s understanding that there is no agreement among Insurance Companies on a comprehensive list of dangerous breed dogs, but most include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Pit Bull Terriers
  • Staffordshire Terriers
  • Rottweilers
  • German Shepherds
  • Presa Canarios
  • Chow Chows
  • Doberman Pinschers
  • Akitas
