UGHHHHHHHHH! Why Do Renters Own 75 lbs. Dogs?

Real Estate Agent with S & L Properties

rentalsI am leasing a beautiful home on a local golf course, and the floors are a gorgeous Brazilian cherry.  The property should have rented the first week but potential tenants don't mention pets until the second visit.  They tell you all about themselves, about their children in college, or the one who is still in high school and they ask about all the basic information and then they leave.  You get a call a few days later telling you how much they love the home and they are ready to do the credit part.  ...and then, "Oh, by the way, you never mentioned anything about pets but we have two German Shepherds, a Irish Setter, two labs, or a really sweet old Jack Russell Terrier."  The last three prospects had huge dogs with humongous you know what those can do to hardwood floors?

If you are a renter, why would anyone have big dogs? I love dogs but they are going to have issues from time to time...don't even get me started on cats!

Because it's not their house and they are not paying for the new floors?  It looks like a beautiful home, good luck!
