Default disgiusing my dog...

hi all, new here, glad i found this place...ok heres my situation...we are moving from PA to RI, we have found the house, but the owner who has no problem with my rotty, but says the insurance person will, resulting in eviction, but if we keep him on the low and the owner of the house are going to say that our dogs are mixes, but the insurance person might stop by to see....our akita can be passed off as a husky mix...but my datyn...well he looks like a rotty...both are the most sweetest dogs..never have bitten or even got aggressive......i am a very responsible pet owner, and i vowed that when i take a pet it is for life...soooo, this is what i am doing....i am going to dye my dog...and he will become walla a lab mix...i have done tons of research on doggie dyes and stuff that is safe for the dog....i also am an airbrush artist and looked into airbrushing him with non toxic paint (the kind they use to bodypaint)...this is only temporary...and we where told that the insurance person, might or might not stop by...they are not sure...i have had problems like this in the past, but we have gotten off lucky, but i have my doubts as a lot has changed in 4 years since we have lived in NC and MA...it burns me up about this.....i could go on...but i am trying to pack this house...lol...

what are your thoughts on this event...i would love to hear what everyone has to say...good or bad or indifferent....i love my dog and i am NOT going to give him up, and will do anything to keep him, until his time is done...

And what you have to paint your dog so as to keep it?
Sounds dangerous!

Poor pup

well the paint is non toxic, i might not even do it, i might go the dye root, as in doggie hair dye...safe for dogs, its only for a week or so...i have done tons of research on the doggie dye...which they say is not toxic to dogs...its just until the adjustor comes out if he/she does...we have searched high and low for a place that will except a rotty, but all is a no go, so this is my last resort, believe me if i didnt have too i wouldnt, but i am not going to give up my pet, because the breed has a bad rap...

i wouldnt do it, if i knew they person would not come into the house, i could just hide him out in the house until the coast is clear, but if this person comes a knockin i have to let him/her in....

do you have any other suggestions for me to do, i am open to any and all, the owner of the rental property knows that hes a rotty, but she is just putting him down as a mut, but clearly looking at him you know hes not....

o am an owner for life, i m not going to give my dog away...i dont trust anyone to take him...i could put him in a boarding kennel, but that gets expensive and the adjustor will still want to see the dog...i am hoping that this person just takes my landlords word for it, as the dye is only temporary, and will was off with water...

ROFL! Hey, as long as you're using non-toxic stuff . . .

Yep, it's rotten to have to do that. I had my homeowners cancelled (Indiana Mutual - don't do business with them!) because of Bimmer - who is obviously a small German Shepherd mix!

Maybe we should start a list of insurors who have cancelled or denied us because of our dogs . . .

I love your sig!

Where I'm from, you don't have to let the owner in unless they make an appointment first. My parents own a condo in the Vancouver area and they always make an appointment first to come and see the place. You might want to see if that's the case where you are.

If not, I say get the dog a bonnet! That'll hide his rottie face but may make him have an identity crisis. LOL

its rediculous anymore...as this house is a rent to own house, so in a year we will most likely be buying the house...it truely sucks!!! i wouldnt do it if i didnt have too, and i would not do it, if it was toxic, but its not...as stated above...

right now this is the landlords insurance, we have no say, because the house is not ours yet, but when the time comes and we decide to buy the house we will have to find an insurance company that will take the dog, and in rhode island that will be hard, i have been doing research on that also, they have a dog law, and a dog ordinance...the house has a fenced in yard, so i told my husband that we could get a privacy fence, so no one sees the dogs...we are planning on doing that shortly after we move in....

That's good. I hope you don't have any major problems. Minor ones are inevitable aren't they?

Dye dye dye! I think it sounds like a good idea as long as it is non toxic.

my insurance co. won't cancel the policy..they just beef up the price of it due to having a GSD. Maybe your landlord's policy is the same??? and you can offer to pay the increase? just a thought. I do know that they (the insurance co. person) do usually just pop in. My neighbors lived here for 3 years and one day the insurance co. made a stop. Not about dogs, but to inspect the wood burning stove....which they had to redo to move it further away from the wall. Meanwhile, I would have been mad about that one because the builder should have known the codes for this. Back to dogs..........I tell that story just to let you know it could possibly be longer than a week or so before they visit. maybe as a last resort, you could find a company that would cover the dogs and pay for it. Hope all works out....your fur family is gorgeous!!
