Yes, many do. The reason being - Homeowners Insurance. If you look at the breed restrictions, or so called 'Bad Dog List' distributed by the Insurance companies, there are approximately 10 breeds known to have a history of bad behavior. Rottweilers being one of them.
We have been leasing properties for 20 years. If the tenants check out in all other ways, but only the breed of dog is holding up their application, we will sometimes make an acceptation and ask them to purchase a 'Liability Policy' on their pet.
Hope this Helps
