Some types of lodging establishments have a "vicious breed" or "dangerous breed" policy that forbids certain types of dogs from being kept there. Pit bulls are very commonly found on these lists. Government-subsidized housing programs, such as Section 8 and public housing, may also have stipulations that forbid participants from keeping pit bulls.
