When purchasing home owner’s insurance or renter’s insurance, it is important to know that there are several insurance companies that discriminate against pit bull type dogs and will not pay out your benefits in the event you file a claim.

In Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Maryland, it is illegal to not offer insurance due to breed of dog, although, insurance companies may charge a higher premium based on breed of dog/s owned.

APBF recommends working with State Farm Insurance. You can find an agent via the State Farm National Directory.

Other insurance companies that do not have breed restrictions:

  • USAA
  • Geico

Insurance companies that DO discriminate against pit bull type dogs:

  • MetLife
  • Allstate
  • Progressive
  • Farmer’s
