It's an impossible dilemma for dog lovers: what to choose between keeping your dog or your home insurance? A number of home insurance companies are now dropping or cancelling coverage for people who own certain dog breeds commonly known to be more vicious, like pit bulls.
But many dog owners say their pets shouldn't be considered a liability, they're family. CNN's Zoraida Sambolin reports.
Colorado Resident Susie Salazar is one person having to choose between fido at home or a home without insurance.
She says after being with the same insurance company for nearly 17 years, American Family Insurance dropped her in April.
Salazar says, "We were informed that you have a pit bull in your home and we have to drop your coverage."
The company's spokesperson explaining their decision to affiliate KUSA saying:
"We made a decision that there were certain breeds of dogs that we would no longer ensure, and pit bulls are one of those breeds."
What would you choose if you were faced with a similar problem?
