 ok our last base we grandfathered in our doberman on base because we got her 1 month before dobermans were added to the not allowed list well this base wont let us grandfather her in even though our last base did so the way i look at it is that it isnt fair to let some people grandfather them in and others not because they came from a different base. i mean i can understand if i would have just bought her here but i didnt i have had her since our last base they want to try to enforce the non vicious dogs soooo bad but yet they allow pits and rotts to be grandfathered in but if u come from another base and had the dog at the previous base you have to get rid of it what sense does that make? if it makes sense to you to not be able to grandfather them in at a new base even though they were allowed at your previous base please let me know bc im lost.

Life isn't fair and neither is the military.

Honestly the bases I've been to didn't even enforce the breed restrictions... I couldn't even keep track of all the pits in myneighborhood.

hence why I don't live on base, and will do my best not to!

I don't know anything about the base rules(why some of them are there), but I hate having a lot of restrictions. So we live off base. However, personally I hate when people label dogs based on their breed. We had a hard time getting into houses to rent because our dog is a rott/lab mix and since she looks predominately like a rott people "didn't want to chance it". Everything was go for us into quite a few houses until they saw the picture of our dog. When she is the most gentle dog I have ever met. So we went the apartment route and searched around until we found a very pet friendly complex that would let us have our dog. She's a member of the family, so I refuse to get rid of her.

If you don't like the rules on base, don't move on base.  And, FYI: punctuation and capitalization makes posts a lot easier to read.  It's hard to follow what you write.

I agree. I usually just skim a post if there is no punctuation.

I agree...on both points.

Also, at your old base, you had the dog before the restrictions went into effect. At the new base, you know going there that the dog isn't allowed in base housing...so it makes sense not to grandfather you in.

I know, if you have a "questionable" dog, you should know this and research other housing options before you move.  But, don't except special treatment because the other base allowed it.  Every base is different.

I know at Ft lewis, if you got a temperment test done, they would approve you. It was written in the rules somewhere...Maybe you can check into that. But like others have said, base housing is not  your only option. Also there are a lot of  off base housing that will also not take agressive breeds.
