There are many homeowner's insurance companies in Maryland who refuse to issue or renew a policy to homeowners who own a certain breed of dog. This type of regulation is discriminatory and heartless, as many homeowners faced with this decision must often

This is a really tough call and I understand both sides of the issue. We had a problem because of our shepherds and husky. But I used to work for an insurance company and I do agree with their stance. They can't *screen* every dog and if you read the list, some breeds ARE risky. Not necessarily their fault...but still.

Hard call to make but, in this economy with ppl loosing their homes no pet should be left out. I would have to become homeless there is no way I am giving up my to GSD's or my parrot. Even if you have a home there is no guarantee your insurance carrier will cover you. Each case should be treated on an individual basis not on fear mongering or perception.

N/S with thanks Cher. Hard call for the insurance co. to make, especially on a couple of the breeds. Certainly not the dog's fault.

signed. I'm weary of all these insurance schemes, I'm being forced to make an unnecessary home improvement or lose my coverage, as one on a fixed income that will have to take a loan, I keep seeing prices going up while my income actually went down $100 a month this year. ouch. It did make a difference. I'm entitled to $16 food stamps a month, but don't want to deal with the bureaucracy.

By the way, I have 2 dogs and a cat, I pay for their license and all other expenses, none of my dogs have ever attacked a person (over the last 50 some years). I understand it can happen but it is as rare as being struck by lightning in my personal experience.

Should not be covered at all, you should buy pet insurance (probably want it for the medical anyway).
