894 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Bellevue, NE
Named after the French word for "beautiful", the town of Bellevue is indeed a beauty, even when it floods. It's easy to be charmed by this suburbia in the prairie-lands of the Missouri River, but first, let's hammer out the nitty-gritty details of renting in Bellevue, Nebraska.
Like most of Nebraska, public transportation just isn't a practical way of getting around. In Bellevue, most people drive their own car, while the rest carpool, bike, or walk to work. Traffic is never too bad for drivers, however, and the weather is often nice enough for people to prefer cruising to work along the miles of creek side bicycle trails that run across the city. The Big Papio and Keystone Trails run along Papillion Creek all the way from Omaha to the Missouri River, snaking around multiple parks, golf courses, college campuses, popular pubs and eateries, as well the Offutt Air Force Base.

Finding an apartment in Bellevue 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.
