Home inspection with a pit mix dog

Hi folks, we are in PA, Philly, to be specific, and are just beginning our adoption journey.

At this point, we are narrowing down on an agency to work with, and we had a question about the home study.

We have a cat (about 5 years old, fat & mellow) and a dog (also about 5 years old, mellow & cuddly), but our dog is a rescue, which (in Philly) means that she is at least part Pit Bull.

We have taken classes, she doesn't jump, lick, or even bark (except once when someone was trying to break into our house), she doesn't go on furniture, she lets the cat eat her food & drink her water, she isn't aggressive in any way- even if you try to pull food or toys away from her, or out of her mouth- she is wonderful with the children of our friends & family... but I know that there is a certain amount of breed specific discrimination.

Does anyone know if this will automatically cause us to fail our home inspection?

Thanks for any advice you can give. But please, if you're here to tell me that my pit mix is dangerous & could kill me or my child, allow me to tell you now that I don't want to hear it. You do not know our (well trained) dog. And I am not asking your advice on owning a mixed breed dog, I am asking about home inspections.

Thanks

I have no answers for you, but I have 2 put mixes (mostly pit with a little lab) and we have always owned them - I haven't heard anything about dog breed influencing these things, so I really hope for your sake they don't! Fingers crossed good luck!

Not quite the same, but I have friends who passed their home inspection with a bulldog. I wouldn't think they would be allowed to be blanket breed discriminators. I'd hope they'd evaluate your home/dog in reality not some bias.

We have a pit bull and we were told it shouldn't effect things. Unless our pittie is dangerous lol
