This is a follow up to my blog about My Top Ten Dog Friendly Condos. The Fort Lauderdale area has quite a few buildings that will gladly allow your furry friend to live with you, but it is more difficult to find condo buildings that will accept larger dogs. Even when you do find one, there may be breed restrictions and/or weight restrictions. I love big dogs! They make great companions and are a much loved part of any family. Unfortunately some associations have implemented pet size restrictions over the years. The good news is that we maintain a current list of pet restrictions for many of the condos in our market. Here are my top 10 condos that allow larger dogs.
