We are the proud owners of two gorgeous German Shepherds (DDR). They are obviously a part of our family and are like our kids. We are also currently in the process of moving back to Ohio due to military relocation. In that process, we've been contacting several rental houses in the area. We were told today that one home would not allow us because German Shepherds are on the "Ohio Vicious Dog List." After searching, all I have come up with (from the Ohio Codes) are that Pit Bulls are the only breed mentioned in the dog codes....that I found. I also checked with State Farm (a random insurance agent that popped up in the search results) that stated they would insure anyone EXCEPT Pit Bulls, as those were the only dogs mentioned in the Ohio Codes.
I am at a loss. My dogs are far from vicious....unless provoked by "intruders" or our command....as is their nature. I would like to contact the rental home again (as it is the perfect home for us) with evidence that they are NOT on the list. Anyone have any thoughts, suggestions, or substantial information that I can present?
Thanks so much!
