Unapproved Dog List due to Aggressive Breed Status

Unapproved Dog List due to Aggressive Breed Status

unapproved dog list

We love animals, just like you do! We love dogs of all shapes and sizes, but as a rental company in the Pensacola area, we are not able to approve all dogs to lease a home through us.

Unfortunately, certain dogs are not allowed in the underwriting guidelines of landlord insurance policies which means our office policies do not allow certain breeds of animals in our rental properties. Because of this, many large dog owners choose to purchase a home instead of leasing one. Our team is happy to help you find a nice home to buy should your situation allow for it. 

It is Realty Masters policy not to allow the following animals in our Pensacola area rental properties due to the fact they are assigned as aggressive breed animals by the insurance underwriters. Any mix of the breeds below is also determined to be an aggressive breed dog and not allowed at the property.

If the landlord specifically requests or allows an aggressive breed dog in their home,we are happy to accomodate as long as an owner understands there is some risk and liability involved in this scenario. We recommend the renter secure renter's insurance with pet liability coverage in these scenarios.
