Please tell me the only consideration for a rental should not be if that rental allows for a third dog. Most places around here allow for 0-2 pets. Which is a bummer since I already have 2 and would like a third. I found one place that would allow a third dog and I almost want to jump on it solely because I could get a puppy. Bad, right? It's not a bad place per say, but I like the others better. But I keep thinking... I could get a dog if I moved there. Not even sure if I would get a third dog just yet but I like the feeling of having the option. The smart thing would be to finish saving up for a donwpayment on a house I could OWN.... Then get the dog. But that seems far away. ETA: Should probably add, this will be my last rental most likely then I hope to have enough to buy a house of my own. Salary is more than enough for the place, it's fairly nice and enough space. Good location, easy access to the office. It's just not quite as nice as the other place as far as carpet and appliances go. I like the location better, but it's about $50 more expensive a month too.
