The Apacheland movie studio opened in the late 1950s, making films featuring well-known stars including John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Jack Nicholson, and Ronald Reagan to name just a few. What remains of the original buildings for the movie sets are still on display at Goldfield Ghost Town.
You'd never know by the modern construction and luxurious amenities that Gold Canyon's history hearkens back to the mid-1800s. Once a tiny stagecoach stop along the Apache Trail and a large cattle ranch, the modern city is home to gated communities and a golfing resort. The Superstition Mountains form the northern and western boundaries of the city, with dramatic craggy peaks rising from a forest of saguaro cacti. The community lies 40 miles east of downtown Phoenix, just north of US-60. See more
Finding an apartment in Gold Canyon 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.
