Who wants to bet the house is a rental and the landlord will be called a "slumlord"

It is surprising that anyone will invest in Rochester rental property.

My friend owned a great house in the city and rented it out. It was destroyed in 6 months.

Hey get rid of pitbulls is it the dogs fault. I actually own one of the puppies from the house and he is one of the happiest dogs I've ever seen he plays with my other dogs and loves to give kisses. Getting rid of the breed all together is ridiculous and you need your head examined. It's not pitbulls it's the owners
