However, more and more landlords these days might be picky about a large breed dog, in comparison to choosing other candidate who don't have one. Having a dog like that definitely requires a place with a yard, as that's the most fair thing to do for the animal.
What you might probably want to do is post on craigslist a *wanted* (in the title) ad, and place that in the list of the people who have places for rent, as well as alongside those looking for places to live as well. Some landlords look on craigslist to research the market before they put their listings on, and THAT might just get you first dibs on a place that someone hasn't listed yet, that might be close enough to the Cherry Creek area you're wanting to move in.
Let me know if I can help you personally more on this.
Otherwise Craigslist.com and RentProperty.com are good sources. I have been hearing about some scams on Craiglist these day and the larger dog can be a problem, you might have to go out of Central Denver a bit.
Hope things work out for you...I'm here to help if you need it!
