Need advice/suggestions
 
I just recentlty moved into a house(renting). When my lanlord moved out, he switched his insurance from homeowners to renters. So, a insurance agent came to our house to do an "evaluation". Of course the first thing he sees in my dog. Long story short,all I need to do is get some kind of paper work from a vet saying she is a mix. Is it as easy as scheduling a appointment and saying she is a "boxer" mix or "boston terrier" mix? Is there any other way around this? If my dog was a "mix"... What do you guys think she looks like the most? I just want this to go as smoothly as possible!!!!

Thanks

She doesn't look like a mix AT ALL Adam. But maybe you could say Stafford shire bull terrier mix. You never registered Brookie before so go to the vet and ask what they think. I'm sure you will get better responses but that's all I got for ya. BTW You back yet?

I know she doesn't look like mix AT ALL, casue she's not! That's my problem. I'm hoping to slip one past someone, and looking for the best way to do it! The insurance agent should be more concerned about Kevin and I living there then any type of dog! lol...

yea, got back late last night... hit me up, we should get up and do what we do best!!!

Hmmm,I'm not sure how easy it is to get a vet to do something like that.but as far as what you could say she's mixed with,look at all the different types of breeds.There are quite a few that can pass for apbt's.Just pick one that you think she most resembles.

aimee235 08-25-2010 03:22 PM

Most vets offices I've seen put whatever you say the dog is on the paperwork. Just make sure you don't pick another "dangerous" breed as her mix. Boxer/lab maybe?

Wait, so the owner doesn't have homeowners insurance? As far as I know that's her responsibility and it's your choice whether you need to protect your stuff with renters... Renters insurance won't cover her place if it goes on fire.

As far as getting papers, try a shelter or something/ Tell them your situation and they might be able to get something for you, the wouldn't want another Pit in their shelter because of something so little..

Another thing you can try is getting something done for your dog at a vet you've never been to before. When they ask what breed it is to put in the file just pick one, I doubt they will fight it...Have fun with it... Maybe Yorki/Schnauzer? .. jk :p

If your dog looks like a pit and has it's ears cropped, you probably won't be able to fudge it. All landlords should have insurance, but many recquire tenants with dogs to buy renters insurance. Also, when a person is a landlord they buy cost effective insurance and most carriers will not insure houses with any APBTs, GSDs or Rotties. I know this for a fact.
One thing you could do is get a CGC on your dog. This can help in some situations and any APBT owner should be able to accomplish this on their dogs.

Here is some info about the CGC

YOu can say he is a Cimarron Uruguayo and you will be set =)

I think it so dumb when they want papers from a vet saying what breed a dog is since for 1 vet usually have no idea about the different breeds, and for 2 the vet writes down that you say your dog is.

I would go with Rhodesian Mix. You can go to any new vet and get a check up or whatever and when they ask what breed tell them Rhodesian mix and thats what they should put. Then your receipt will say so.

If you can't afford a check up see if you current vet would print you out a receipt saying then different breed. Some vets are cool about it some are not.

:rofl:

When you go to the vet they usually ask you what breed your dog is. Just say whatever and they'll write it down.

Fatadam9 08-25-2010 05:17 PM

Thanks alot everyone!!!! I was hoping I could just say whatever breed/mix I wanted and they would just write it down. Wasn't sure if they would give me a hard time. My vet I go to, says PITBULL in big black bold letters on all her paperwork. So that's not gonna work. I will probably just take her to a new vet and say boxer mix because of her color and looks.

@ jemegiaa... I know, it doesn't make much since, and I told him that. But pretty much it is what it is so I have to go through alll this BULL#@$%!!!

Thanks again everyone.....

Fatadam9 08-25-2010 05:18 PM

oh and DAVIDFITNESS.... I can't even pronounce that breed! lol...

Lex's Guardian 08-25-2010 09:17 PM

Heard of this scenario...

Best think I'd think to do, is go in for a typical appointment... When your vet asks what type of breed, say IDK & ask him to be the judge. Or tell the vet you were questioning his breed, ask him his opinion.

He should write his own observations... Then ask for copies of vet notes when you leave to pay.

Just a suggestion ;)

EckoMac 08-25-2010 09:23 PM

Take him to a new vet, when they ask his breed say boxer curr mix. Then your paperwork will say boxer curr mix. If that's all their looking for then you can easily give it to them. Every vet I've encountered has relied on me to provide "breed".
