So we are moving there in 3wks. Hubby is Army. We never had a issue as goes for finding a house off base when it comes to pets. But then again both towns we been in (only rented a off base house 2x, the other times been on base) without banned breeds. We have a mix pitbull. ALL Real Estates in Virginia Beach, and most surounding areas, will not allow this breed. Now people ask "just say she is a mix but dk what or say she is a lab x (we been saying lab x for 8yrs even tho we figured she did have some pit in her and we finally got a genetic test done on her)?"...Answer is because if we signed a contract that has the banned breeds on there and they found out we MIGHT have a pit, they have the right to ask for a test and then when we show them our papers or redo the test (I will not redo cuz of money since we already did it) they can/will kick us out and owe ALOT of money or in some cases they can sue. SO that being said, we are avoiding issues/red flags and doing the right thing, plus telling the truth is the best thing. Some also ask "why dont u get rid of the dog then?"..Answer is...I DO NOT BELIEVE IN GETTING RID OF ANIMALS!! So I will not budge. She is 100% harmless as well..They won't allow recommendations from Vets or temperment tests either...So......do you know of ANY houses/areas (or real estates maybe I missed that WILL allow her)??? I am picky with houses and need something in my taste and that fits us and I can't lower certain standards. Another question I been asked is "why not live on base?"...Answer is becuase they are even banned on there (we lived on 1 base she got grandfathered in, and the other base we lied and did our best to hide her) so rather not go that route either, plus we hate living on base, we are happier off base and will keep it that way. So just seeing if anyone knows of places and such....Thanks!
