Apartment rules about pets
Collin and I have to move again as his work has transferred him to York PA. I have been trying to get a headstart on the apartment hunting online since finding a place that takes pets, especially large dogs, is usually difficult. I was actually quite pleasantly surpised to find that most of the complexes do take pets! But I received this from one of the agents and I thought it was interesting but illogical!

What exactly is a New Finland? And a pet service fee? Are they going to walk him for me? And why is a large dog twice the amount? Strange....I always find it interesting, the rules these places come up with and often wonder about the reasoning behind them...sometimes, I just can't figure it out....:confused:
