Unless you have a Pit bull, Rottweiler, or a Chow...
Aggressive Breed Dogs
Let's go ahead and get that out of the way. Unfortunately, we can not accept dogs that will affect the owners insurance. There is no standard aggressive breed dog list (that would be easy!) It varies between companies and policies. This is one of the reasons we accept most pets on owners approval, as we need to run all pets by the home owner.

We are sorry. :( It is merely a matter of keeping the homeowners insurance in tact, which is especially important during hurricane season! Homeowners insurance in our area is expensive and hard to secure and keep. Per most insurance policies, the policy can be cancelled if an aggressive breed animal is on the premises.
There is typically no chance of getting Pit Bulls, Dobermans, Rottweilers, or Chows accepted in our properties. For other breeds, we typically consult with the owner of the property for approval or denial for your pet based on their preferences and their insurance company's policies. For pit bull. doberman, and rottweiler dog owners, we suggest checking with private homeowners.
If you feed it, bathe it, clean up after it, love it, or take it outside, it's a pet. You must disclose any pets including gerbils, fish, mice, reptiles, etc. All pets are subject to a minimum $250 nonrefundable pet fee
Other factors when considering pets:
1. Number & Type of Pets- One pet is usually a go if advertised pets on approval. Conversely, 4-6 pets is usually a no when renting a home!
2. Age of pet(s)- Facts of life: Babies cry, Puppies chew. Mature animals do considerably less damage than immature animals.
3. Size of pet(s)-Larger pets have the ability to do more damage.
4. Flooring Type- Some owners with light colored carpeting do not allow pets.
5. Adequate fencing and yard space- Important to some
6. Homeowners Association Restrictions- Some subdivisions, mainly condos and town homes, have certain pet restrictions.
Getting your pets accepted

Generally, the advertisements on our website will have some specific information about pets if the owner has expressed restrictions. Some examples include, no cats, no reptiles, pets under 50 pounds, 1 pet only, no pets, etc.
You must send a photo of your animal(s) with your application and make sure to provide the 1) type of pet, 2) breed 3) age 4) weight in order for pets to be processed. You may email your photo to the property manager or to Nicoles@PensacolaRealtyMasters.com for approval.
Increase your chances of getting your pet(s) approved!
1. Send the picture with a write up about your pet(s). Describe your pet to the property owner including what your pet likes to do, whether your pet is kennel trained, or took an obedience class or two. Make sure to include all the pertinent information above. Call it his/her pedigree.
2. Include vet records, shot records, and proof of flea medication with your application. This lets the owner know you are a serious pet owner and take good care of your pet(s). Ask for a letter from your vet, and ask them to comment on your pet(s) temperament if they will!
3. Offer an extra $250 refundable deposit to the owner! If you have multiple pets, this is not a bad idea to offer some extra security. As the rental market continues to thrive, we can receive multiple applications in the same day. Homeowners will chose 1 pet over 3 most days.
