    A friend of mine found and fell in love with a bull terrier in a local shelter. She lives in an apartment complex that DOES allow dogs, but you cant have pitbulls, german shepherds, dobermans or rotweilers (sp??lol) Would this dog be conciderd a pitbull? I couldnt answer her, so I came here because I always get help here :) She wants this dog, and Im actually going to see him with her tomorrow!

    Yes, it is very likely that it will be considered a "pit bull" type dog. It is best for her to find a small size breed since your post indicates building policy wants no big breeds in building.

    I would contact the building management for a clear definition of their policy. In most locals the dog referred to as the English Bull Terrier is not included in breed bans. Those dogs mentioned are unfortunately lumped into a group often listed as aggressive breed dogs. Although it is often referred to as a bull breed the term pit is not attached to this breed. I would get a copy of the AKC standard and find as much positive press as possible on the breed to bring with you. Perhaps you can copy the AKC's Deed Not Breed poster from the internet or e-mail me directly at Bullful@aol.com and I will send it to you.
    If she does get permission to have the dog a lot of responsibility rests on her shoulders to set a good example with the dog so that it is not ruined for others in the future. Many people in apartments own BT's and there are many in NYC.

    Agreed, we have a pit bull ban in ONT and bull terriers arent included.

    I have a bull terrier in an apartment that doesn't allow pit bulls, shepherds, akitas, bull mastiffs, dobermans, rottweilers, etc. For some reason they forgot about the bull terrier, which is great for us! I would ask specifically. Better be safe than sorry!
