again, I think people are missing the point and getting off topic. We lived in the South in USA(North Carolina) I am not concerned with the heat, she is an indoor dog, not an outdoor dog. We go out to play and to run, she will sleep inside and be inside when I am at work. I did not bring this topic up to discuss wheather I am a bad man to bring a dog to Sing, I mearly asked is it hard to get an apartment with a med size dog. If someone has any useful information I would much appreciate it. I will appologize in advance for being such a rotten and selfesh man for rescuing a dog and having the audacity to bring it to Singapore.

No. It's not hard. But in view of the current heating up of the property market a lot may well depend on your budget as well. As a homeowner here I cannot give you any info but the site itself has a great deal of info here: http://www.singaporeexpats.com/housing- ... operty.htm

If you find a place you might be interested in the admins may well be able to tell you if the condo has pet restrictions or not. (I am a stray person as well). Lost my mutt after 13 years a few years ago but have not found myself able to think about a replacement yet.

Nice thing about Holland Village area - proximity to expat hangouts, good jogging/walking areas, esp if you walk up to Botanic Gardens.

Bad thing about HV area - lots of the nice big apartments that can fit medium to large dogs are going en bloc, which means they're going to be torn down soon!! The smaller (newer) apartments have paper-thin walls, which may frustrate neighbours if your dog tends to bark a lot.

C'mon man, no one says you were selfish for rescuing the dog, the question is whether it is a good idea to just keep a dog indoor in the humid heat here all day.

I bet you can make that decision in the interest of the dog though.

Like most people would do, with or without dog, before coming to Singapore for good, spend a week or two here to get to know the place and view some places to get a bit of an idea on the prices here, the locations, the appartments itself, the space etc.

Downtown, your preferred area, is doable with your budget, but it won't be a big place you get. In downtown area is a nice park, Fort Canning park, which is ideal to take the dog walking. Furthermore near Tanglin area is also a bit of nature, with the botanic gardens and dempsey area.

Personally I would not choose Holland V area, as it is a dump of construction for the coming few years and it is a neighbourhood outside of downtown, the nightlife there is just a couple of bars and restaurants, not the night entertainment you'd get in Clark Quay.

And for yourself being a dog owner, quite a few owners do not wish to have a tenant with pets...

Now stop moaning about people (basically just me) attacking you for your dog abuse, it ain't like that.
