Hm...I've never heard of anyone banning the German Pinscher before. If he is black you could try passing him off as a Manchester Terrier. Or the Miniature Pinscher (I forget if they are the same breed, lol) And depending on how he looks, you might even be able to say Chihuahua; if they aren't dog savvy, they wouldn't know the difference.

Of if worse comes to worse, say he is a mutt of some sort....again, granted they aren't that dog savvy.

What does he weigh? If he's on the smaller end of the scale you may be able to convince a less dog savvy landlord that he's a big Min Pin. If his ears are cropped you probably won't be able to pass him off as any kind of mix.

hmm is he on smaller or bigger side of the family? black and tan or red and tan? there is no dog taht really looks like them and if they banned pinchers chances are they banned rottweielrs and pitbulls as well....

have they banned ALL pinchers? or just the doberman pincher? that might be a definition issue? Why wouldn't they accept a german pincher by the way? its a small dog...

You could tell people it is a beucorone mix..
http://www.gotpetsonline.com/picture...ceron-0003.jpg

Mixed with something smaller and smooth haired, like an english style black lab... The reason for that is when you tell people you have a herding dog / lab mix people tend to relax MUCH more cause they are thinking friendly. and if you have a high energy dog, you can just say that's that the herding dog in him. Beucerone is rather high energy and not too well known..

but my question is, why move to a place where you have to lie? IF someone calls you out on it then there is a risk you would have to move or get evicted... thats not good...

and on the good end, the beucerone has cropped ears, so if anyone wonder you could say the breeder had them cropped cause they looked more like beucerone than lab or something like that...

A German Pinscher is like a smaller Dobermann. I don't think it could pass for a min pin or Manchester. If the ears are cropped, it can't pass as a mutt. I think you should keep looking.
