I need a temporary furnished place for 6 months and I have a very well trained 85lb Doberman. Where should I look?

Asked by Christina Mckenzie, Austin, TX Sat Dec 8, 2012

I'm willing to rent outside the city, but I wouldn't want more than a 45 minute commute if possible

Hi, Christina, I would be willing to rent to you & your dog short-term but my place is unfurnished. But it's not that big, so it shouldn't be too hard to rustle up some temporary furniture. Please contact me if this interests you.

Hi Christina -

If you're open to places outside of the city, you have a much better chance of getting a place with a yard for your dog. If you're commuting into SF daily, I recommend sticking as close to bart or caltrain as possible. You might want to check out San Mateo and Burlingame on the peninsula.

Have you asked this question in Oakland? I'm not super familiar with a lot of the individual neighborhoods, but know a lot of dog owners there! Might also want to check out Berkeley.

Good luck!
