I also have a dog and I know that Brookline is a terrible area for dogs. Almost no dog parks and the buildings are very strict with weight limitations and breed. Allston and Brighton seems better for dog friendly buildings.

First of all let me say that Brookline actually is a fine place for a dog because it has a good size dog park, (specific but good hours), and also because it is "part of" a wider area where there are many great dog spots: Jamaica Plain, Roslindale,Brookline,West Roxbury. Google The Emerald Necklace; Arnold Arboretum, Millenium Park. Also, Amazon and other booksellers should have some of the books about Boston + dogs. That said,the previous answer is correct about most buildings in Brookline having strict dog (or anti-dog) rules. Brookline is one of the most expensive places to live in Boston area with least sq footage for your buck! I have a dog and live in Jp/Rozzie/WR/Hyde Park area and I am so happy that I do simply bcuz it's so dog friendly without having to be in the suburbs. If you r looking to rent, then with pets u will have less options anywhere u r looking.
