Our dog Stella is a brindle (brown/white) Boston terrier breed. She is the sweetest puppy, always jumping on our bed waking us up in the morning, following us around as we're getting ready for work in the morning, and faithfully waits by the window for us to get home.
We just recently lost her for 2 whole days during a horrible rainstorm and was afraid we would never see her again.
We brought her over to my sister's house because we had to take a trip to NJ for a weekend wedding. When Stella arrived at my sisters house my fiancee had already left and proceeded to drive home, and my sister's little girls were so happy to play with Stella. But Stella, being a young dog and still unfamiliar with new surroundings panicked and had her little doggie accidents in the house. My brother in law put her in the backyard and called me to come get Stella back fearing she was not potty trained. So when my fiancee went to go back to pick her up, driving about 20 miles roundtrip to get her, Stella apparently had broken free from her leash, crawled under the fencing from the backyard and started to run away through the neighboorhood.

Landlords want to protect their investment. As a pet owner, you want to show a prospective landlord that you are a responsible tenant and a responsible pet owner. You want to convince the landlord that it would be a good thing to have you as a tenant! Here are a few things to consider when renting with pets:
Create a resume for your pet.
It might sound funny to have a resume for an animal, but it can help show a landlord that you are a responsible pet owner. Include helpful information like obedience and socialization classes, any volunteer work your pet might have done (eg. pet-assisted therapy work), references from veterinarians, dog trainers, pet sitters, neighbors, previous landlords, etc.. You could also include a copy of your pet's vaccination records to show that he's healthy and is up-to-date on vaccines. It also helps to show that your pet is spayed or neutered. Finally, include a short write-up about you as a pet owner.
Offer a prospective landlord the opportunity to visit you at your current residence.
He can then meet your pet and see how well you keep your current rental unit.
Try to take a few days off when you move into a new place to help your pet adjust.
It's new for your pet too, and sometimes even the quietest pets will get anxious in new surroundings and make excessive noise, disturbing the neighbors.
