Reverse breed restrictions

With landlord Jade Rouzeau, Rottweiler's are welcome
Many landlords don't accept pets at all, and those who do generally only accept smaller pets, or dogs of certain breeds. This naturally causes problems for people who have a large dog, or a not allowed breed. Worst case scenario, the family might have to give up the dog, and a loved family member ends up being put down in a shelter.

According to the Huffington Post, Jacksonville landlord Jade Rouzeau tired of these conditions. She and her family love large dogs, especially pit bulls, and only rents to tenants with large dogs.

Besides being big, at least one dog in the household must be of a breed other renters tend not to allow. This list includes for instance Huskies, German Shepherds, Staffordshire Terriers, Pit Bull Terriers, Dalmatians, and Rottweilers.

Other qualities Rouzeau looks for are good-natured and friendly people who will love the home.

According to the article, only 12 percent of rentals nationwide are listed as pet friendly, and the number in Florida is even lower. Rouzeau's initiative will be a welcome one for lovers of big dogs.
