Most Commonly Restricted Dog Breeds

Your pup may be the apple of your eye, but your insurance company or landlord may consider Fido to be a huge liability. Dogs and insurance have been at odds for years and because of some bad claims situations, some insurance carriers and rental companies maintain lists of restricted breeds.

5. Chow Chow

6. Great Danes

8. Akitas

9. Alaskan Malamutes

10. Siberian Huskies

11. Wolf-hybrids

12. Cane Corsos
