So we have been having a trend of applicants asking to bring dogs that in our opinion are aggressive breeds but are bringing in letters from veterinarian stating the dog is mixed breed (for instance this one states it’s a Shar-Pei mix). How do you handle these situations? This is a grey area for us.

Well that definitely is a shar pei mix but the way genetics work the other part could be lab. If a vet has stated that it's not on the list I'd just accept them

Require a pet interview for every dog, not just the ones you think are aggressive and decide based on that. Not all “aggressive” breeds act the same and honestly that dog looks like a lab and shar-pei to me so it would just depend on its temperament

If they lie on the application, the liability falls to them not the property. You did your best

Any dog can bite. Liability is with the owner. Let them have their dog- if there’s an issue, you evict. Simple. That dog looks like a lover

We don’t do breed restrictions any longer. All dogs must come in for an interview

How to handle? Eliminate breed restrictions and put the responsibility on the owner. Period. Every dog is different. Judging personality based on breed is about as ridiculous as deciding someone’s temperament based on their race- totally antiquated and not productive or efficient for either party.

Yes, it looks like Shar-Lab. It’s always difficult. Good luck!
