Most buildings have a 30 or 50 lb limit. Since Chicago is a dog-lover city, being able to have a small dog (at least) will actually help with your resale value.
Just let me know if you have any other questions.

I completely agree with Michael and Kipp. We sold a condo last summer on Webster that did not allow dogs. We would have had multiple bidders before 2 of the bidders found out there were no dogs in the building. We ended up with 1 offer that was good but if the seller had 3 offers we would have been more likely to get more money for the condo. The people that bought did not care that is was a no pet building, they just did not have pets.
Its helpful to make strict rules and fines for pet owners who do not clean up after their pets and to restrict the dog count to 1 or 2 dogs.
Best of luck,
