I am a huge animal lover and would be the one to ask "Do you have pets?" and hope the answer is "Yes, many!" My townhouse (for sale, FSBO) would be great for pets, as it has upstairs & downstairs screened porches on both front and back of unit! But, there is not fenced yard. But great area for dog walking, to be sure. One neighbor walks her 2 large huskies because she can do a long, long walk under total shade of the mature oak trees.
