    NYC Co-Op Requires Breed Verification, DNA Testing for Dogs

    Dog-owning residents at one Manhattan co-op are barking mad about a policy instituted at their building that requires tenants to prove the breeds of their pooches.
    The board for the 42-floor luxury building at 170 West End Ave. is requiring owners to have veterinarians sign off on their pets’ pedigree or get a DNA test to find out a pup’s breed makeup. The policy is designed to force out dog breeds the board finds troublesome.

    "Some, I guess more of the elders, feel stronger for this rule because they don't want dogs jumping on them in elevators," said resident Sam Schwartzben. "It's like a rule so not everyone's getting dogs, but if you pursue it you can definitely get one. It's just to set a standard so not everyone has a dog."

    DNAInfo reports 27 dog breeds are banned under the policy. They run the gamut as far as size, barring toy breeds like Shih Tzu and larger ones, such as pit bulls and German shepherds.

    If an owner doesn’t know the makeup of his or her dog, he or she has to get a test proving that the pup’s DNA doesn’t contain more than 50 percent of a banned breed.

    A resident who asked to be identified only as Susie said she is a dog walker and couldn't understand why building management would want some of the dogs on the list excluded from the premises.

    "I really think the administration in this building would rather not have dogs and they have all these strict rules because they're trying to decrease the dog population," Susie told NBC 4 New York. "If you live in 170 and you don't give them a DNA test, I don't know what they'd do to you -- I guess get a lawyer."

    Another resident told DNAInfo the policy was akin to discrimination.

    “It’s like dog racism essentially,” one dog-owning resident told DNAInfo. “It’s beyond offensive, it’s intrusive.”

    $3k/sq ft is cheap. norm around here is $10k/sq ft plus.

    and nobody minds because it never drops in value.

    Looking at a 2500 sq. ft. cedar log house with nice modern updates on 5+ acres with a 3/4 acre pond, 2 acres of woods and two 3 car garages all not too far from the city for $325k asking price. Should be able to get it for right around $300K. I know it isn't NYC but I consider that a bonus. :c

    i think most places here are being bought as investments now. many don't even live in them. they just warehouse them because they are guaranteed to significantly increase in value, and because the property taxes here are almost nothing.

    This area gets ragged on but 5+ acres with trees surrounding your views is just as beautiful here as anywhere else in the country. The weather is debatable of course.

    Why would you want a German Shepard in NYC?

    I visited Rottedam Netherland, and they don't curb their big dogs. It was like walking through a mind field of poop walking down a side walk.
