There’s no doubt living the condominium lifestyle has its share of advantages. From unbeatable downtown locations to a wealth of community or in-building amenities, living in a downtown Dallas condo can be affordable, practical, and most of all—convenient. But for local dog owners however, finding the right Dallas condo can sometimes be a bit more challenging than you think. Some condo developments have breed restrictions, while other buildings may happen to place weight restrictions on any dog(s) you may own. While most area residents consider Dallas to be an extremely dog-friendly city, it’s always best to do thorough research when considering a loft or condo building anywhere in town. And if you happen to be an active home buyer and are currently in search of the right dog-friendly home in Dallas, these 5 Dallas condo and apartment buildings should certainly be worth consideration:
