City Guide for Northport, AL

Nestled on the same block as the Northport 5 & 10, which dates back to 1850, and across the street from Anders Hardware, which opened in 1909, City Cafe would fit right in on the set of The Andy Griffith Show.

Northport, Alabama, is like a little brother to the city of Tuscaloosa, though the people running the place might object to that description. The two cities are side by side, and share the same highways, the same Chamber of Commerce, and even the same people going back and forth to work, attending the University of Alabama, and enjoying local eateries and shops. With 23,330 residents at the time of the 2010 U.S. Census, Northport is only one-fourth the size of its big brother. The origins of the split may be the result of people on one side of town not liking the other side telling them what to do -- so they packed their bags and formed a new city. Can't prove it, of course. It's just a suspicion. That happened way back in 1871, so it's likely the city is over any petulance it might have felt in bygone days. Northport is on the north side of the working Black Warrior River and is quite content to let the craziness of the university stay on the south side in Tuscaloosa. See more

What to keep in mind when looking for dog friendly apartments in Northport, AL

Finding an apartment in Northport that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.

While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.

If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
