You need to get off the condo thing and buy a house!
Condo assoc. are not going to put up with 2 large dogs. And if by chance you do find one, do you really want to be running them down the hallway, into the elevator, then to an area they can "go" in 3 or 4 times a day? On top of that, your neighbors will hate you and blame your dogs for all kinds of things.
My friends have an older Y-lab and it's been a real pain living in a condo. They live in an upscale condo and once when their Lab was sick, and she had to go, it was all the way down the hallway and in the elevator, not a good thing when the neighbors opened their door! lol
When you factor in those high HOA fees and the MUCH better loan terms borrowers can get on a home, look at buying a house with a fenced backyard where all you have to do is open the door!
