I clearly see a Pit Bull in the mix, which we do not accept at our communities due to the aggressiveness associated with the Pit Bulls.

Weight limit will fix the problem. Most aggressive breeds start at about 50lb so do a 45 limit. We have an age minimum too, 18 months. Don't want carpet to be a training pad.

I would ask them to bring in the dog for a meet and greet. It could be a mix of so many things. If the Vet is willing to vouch for the pet on paper I say let the dog in if it passes a simple meet and greet. Looks like the sweetest baby to me. All dogs can attack and the bad reputation of Pit type dogs needs to stop. Everyone and every animal deserve a chance. Innocent until proven guilty. They are the biggest lovers and if shows no aggression when you meet I say allow.

I have four rescues...my concern with the vet's representation is it's vague. First, unless I know the vet I won't take their word for it. Second, it looks more pit bull than shar pei to me. Third, had on at least two occasions with two different properties we own where a pit bull got loose and attacked either our dog or one of our tenant's dog. Nope, err on the side of caution on this one.

Aggressive breeds are a misnomer perpetuated by media and bias. Each dog is as unique as their owners.

Curious what the parameters of a dog interview would be? It seems like such a gray area.
