Not everyone likes dogs. And yes, there seems to be an inordinate amount of dog poop left on the ground on the Upper West Side. We get that, and it sucks.
But since when did Upper West Siders and landlords get so uptight about canines?
First, we have buildings where the dogs aren’t allowed to touch their feet on the lobby floor. And now the coop at 170 West End Avenue is banning certain breeds that they deem undesirable, and making dog owners who don’t have notes from their vets get DNA tests? The Post reported:
The board has a list of 27 breeds that “are not permitted to reside in the building based upon documented information regarding their tendency towards aggressiveness,” the policy says.
The list of forbidden Fidos includes Malteses, Pomeranians, St. Bernards and German shepherds.
A resident at 170 contacted us today to complain about the “absurd” policy. “Just disgusting.”
Let loose in the comments about this or other pressing matters of the day, friends.
