|Our biggest issues finding an apartment came from having large dogs, having more than one dog, and being a young, unmarried couple. So many people have been displaced due to foreclosure that landlords could just skip over "high risk" renters like us and pick from a plethora of semi-retired couples with no pets. Most of the time we were shut down so quickly we couldn't even offer to bring the dogs for a meet and greet.
That said, yes, Huskies are backlisted as a dangerous breed although not as frequently as breeds like Rotties, Shepherds and Pit Bulls. There have been attacks on children by pet Huskies, and like most dog attacks they can be directly traced back to negligent parents. The media seems not to care about that side of things, though.
Everything is state-by-state... Here in Connecticut, a dog can have a bite on his record for grabbing clothing. There doesn't have to be any contact with skin. Three bites and an Animal Control Officer can seize your dog and euthanize it. Less, if they deem the dog "dangerous." Huskies being as mouthy as they are, I'm always very conscious of that.
