Leavenworth/Kansas City Question

I should be moving to Ft. Leavenworth with my significant other for a few months here shortly. I read that Pitbulls are still legal in Leavenworth, but are banned in Kansas City, where I'd imagine wanting to spend a lot of my time. I was wondering how those type of laws work exactly? If I live in Leavenworth with my Pitbull and want to say, visit a friends house with my dog in KC or perhaps join a training class in KC, am I able to do that or is she banned from all city limits? Also if I just want to even go on a road trip with my Pitbull and I pass through a city where they are banned, do I risk getting a fine or losing her if I just let her out to potty at a rest stop?
ugh... this is BS I even have to ask these questions..

I mentioned this in the other thread, but I was under the impression that pit bulls were banned in all military housing. I am not sure why Ft. Leavenworth would be an exception. I would definitely check into it.

Unless you are planning on living off base, but from the other thread it appeared you were staying on base.

Well shoot.. I'll have to look into that. I'm not sure if we will be staying on or off base or if there is an option to live off base. I will have to talk to my man about that one. Right now he is doing some veteran's mountaineering course so I won't be able to get a hold of him until Wednesday and we're SUPPOSED to be moving there on the 19th. If anything, I can stay in good old Minneapolis, but then I'll be away from my beau for another 3 months. Any Army significant other knows how hard the absences in the relationship can be, but I made a commitment to Margot, so her safety and well being comes first. :)

So say we are living in Leavenworth OFF base?

I realize this is an old post but, I am moving to the Ft Leavenworth area with my boyfriend in September. We are going to be living off base and were hoping to purchase a home in between Kansas City & Leavenworth. Did you end up finding any areas that were pitbull friendly? I currently live in Florida where BSL is illegal so I've never had to really deal with this outside of individual landlords.
