I know there are pet-friendly apartments in Gainesville. Are there any restrictions?

Having a pet can be a great thing. Dogs are loyal companions who live for their owners, making your life better each and every day, although sometimes, they can also make life a little difficult by making it more difficult to find a place to live. A lot of communities have restrictions for pets including: breed and size or weight. Additionally, they also can subject residents to additional fees. Not only that, they can make your apartment a little messier but they have special needs that require attention like having to be fed and let outside. So there are a few things that would make your life a little easier, some of which can be addressed when choosing your new home. I don't know what I'd do without my dog!

It is very rare to find a community that does not have restrictions on dogs. The most common breed restrictions are: chows, pit bulls, and german shepherds. In regards to weight or size restrictions, most restrictions are that the weight of the dog has to be lower than 20-40 pounds. Check with each community for the specifics. As far as the number of pets allowed if that is a concern you may have, Gainesville communities typically don't have restrictions on the amount of pets, but as mentioned previously, commonly there are fees associated with each pet. You may be subject to a deposit per animal and maybe even a monthly fee per animal. Since this is extra money you will be paying on top of your monthly rent, you may not want to bring too many companions along with you as these would add up pretty fast!
