Seattle is a very dog-friendly city and there are some great dog parks around. While some Washington state municipalities ban pitbull type breeds, Seattle itself has no such restrictions. However, you may find some landlords who otherwise permit dogs do not allow tenants to have these types of breeds due to liability concerns.
You may only have three small animals, such as dogs or cats, at your home if your property is less than 20,000 square feet (1860 square meters).
If you're interested in more unusual pets, you may keep miniature goats and small potbelly pigs.
A full list of pet restrictions is available on the Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections website.
