1,130 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Dearborn Heights, MI
The fight may not have matched the Hatfields and the McCoys, but Dearborn Heights had its own little battle going with the city of Inkster, a battle in which Dearborn Heights was named as victor.
Dearborn Heights has a long history of coming out on top, starting with the battle surrounding its incorporation in 1960. On a map, the 11-square-mile city of more than 56,000 residents is shaped like a dog head and dog body connected together by a long, thin strip of neck. That neck strip travels directly through Inkster, which is why Inkster made such a stink fighting Dearborn Heights, even delaying its first mayor taking office for three whole years. By 1963, however, Dearborn Heights officially won the battle and this metro Detroit area city has been ballooning with pride ever since. See more
Finding an apartment in Dearborn Heights 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.
