If you are considering adopting a pit bull type dog, you will need to check with your homeowner's or renter's insurance company to make sure they support responsible pet owners, i.e., companies that do not discriminate against specific dog breeds.

If you find your insurance company has breed restrictions or uses a "dangerous dog" list to determine coverage eligibility, you will need to seek new coverage prior to adoption.

Additionally, if you rent an apartment or home that is managed by a property management company, you will need to ensure they do not have any breed bans in place for animals that reside on their property.
