They can live in Apartments with no problems as long as you exercise them every single day. If they don't get enough exercise, as with all dogs, they can become destructive out of boredom. I lived in a small condo a few years ago with 2 pit bulls and a rottie. I don't work, so it was no problem for me to take them out several times a day. A walk around the block once a day is not enough exercise for them, they need to be able to run, especially if they are young. This is just my opinion, from my experiences. It is possible, you just need to decide if you will have enough time for a Rottie, when you have 2 jobs. Good luck. Let us know what you decide!
