never ever lie to a landlord. always be up front. you dont want to beat around the bush and tellher you want to adopt just a dog, and then have her find out the "dog" is a pit bull. even though she is cool with Rodney, always be honest and upfront, you dont want to wind up homeless with rodney and a new dog.
does rodney do anything? like therapy or anything like that?? sometimes people will be more approved if you are doing something positive with your pit. if they ask you say "my dog is a registerd therapy dog and visits patients in the hospitals" then you go about telling how much training you both had to have. trust me, its a very impressive line and i use it all the time when me and rufus are out. he wears his therapy dog tag all the time, it gets a conversation going, and alot of people i have met never knew pit bulls could be therapy dogs. with a nice conversation i can change the views of the person i am talking to, and its great to walk away knowing that one mind was changed.
