Honestly, it's tough to say. Most people have a hard time correctly identifying what a "pit bull" is anyway. And when mixed with other breeds it's almost impossible to say for sure.

However, rental properties with banned breeds don't need to prove anything. They just have to think your dog looks a certain way to make their case. If you're uncertain, I wouldn't risk it. Unless you can get something official in writing from the landlord saying that this specific dog has permission to live there and is not considered to be of a banned breed... you're taking a risk that won't be fair to her.

Plus, if she's already listed as a Pit Mix somewhere (is she at a shelter or rescue?) then all it would take was a web search for the landlord or a nosy neighbor to bust you. I hate places with breed bans but the only way to fight them is through changing minds with consistent positive PR for the breed. Trying to sneak around the rules only backfires in the end.

She is gorgeous though! :inlove:

Your pup could be so many different mixes. Pharaoh hound wouldn't be likely as they aren't a particularly common breed but I suppose it depends on your area. Kind of looks like a Plott hound mix to me! Gorgeous.

Why not talk to the head of your complex? Take her picture and say you wanted to double check it's okay you got a dog and she was the one you were considering?

You should also request a new lease agreement to be drawn up by the management of the apartment complex to include this particular dog.

When we adopted our dog, we created an addendum to our lease agreement with our landlord and negotiated a fair pet deposit which we paid and both we and our landlord have signed copies of the addendum to include our dog in our lease agreement. This doesn't mean that our landlord cannot change the terms of our lease at will but it protects us from any claims of violating lease agreements due to having a dog that was not present when we first entered into the rental agreement with the landlord.
