In general, newer developments are allowing some pets although many are restricted to smaller breeds.
I am happy to answer any questions that you may have. As a local area expert I can tell you that "pet friendly" refers to the restrictions that the Rules and Regulations of the complex places for pets that can be brought to the units. They vary from complex to complex but the standard seems to be dictated by weight or sometimes breed. Good luck with your home search and feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have regarding the process, location or demographics.
Is there a particular condo complex you had in mind? I'm very familiar with all of the condos in the area you are looking. Please email me for more information.

You've received some good advice from Mike and Anna. I'd also like to add that "pet friendly", for a condo, usually means that pets are allowed, with restrictions.
Most of the condos I've encountered place size limits of 20 or 25 pounds on pets and only allow one per unit. If restrictions on the size or number of pets is a concern to you, perhaps a multi-unit building that's not a condo would be a better choice.
In Florida there are various kinds of ownership that benefit owners of large pets or multiple pets. For example, townhomes that are attached single-family homes are usually a good match for these pet owners.
I imagine Massachusetts has similar distinctions between various forms of ownership. Perhaps some of our Massachusetts members could suggest possibilities to you. Good luck in your home search.
