Finding Insurance Companies Without Breed Exclusions (nationwide) . . .
The organizations listed below have compiled lists of insurance companies that do not have breed exclusions.

As is the situation with certain insurance companies, many of the landlords that do accept pets have restrictions against certain breeds.  However, there have been countless situations where landlords have made exceptions to their breed-specific biases if the dog in question has passed his/her AKC Canine Good Citizen test.  (See above for testing locations.)
