It certainly will ... and even if you could find something, be prepared to pay a considerable pet deposit ... $1000 or more is not out of the question.
You'll also need to inform any owner what breeds the dogs are ... some insurance companies (including mine) will not cover incidents involving pit bulls, rottweilers, chows and other such animals.
It's a long shot at best.... more
There are a handful of potential properties if you are interested in living onsite.

I live in a senior community and I know of one townhome that will be coming on the market soon. What are you looking for one or two bedrooms? Our community is close to the med center and downtown. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me.
Your best bet is to work with an apartment locator. Realtors deal primarily with single-family homes, townhouses and condominiums. Your price point should get you something really nice. You may have an issue with your wife's commute, since Houston is decades behind other major cities with respect to public transportation. Welcome ... I wish you well.

First and foremost, Texas Realtors are not permitted to participate in lease/purchase or "rent-to-own" transactions. You'd need an attorney to draw up two separate contracts ... one for the lease, the other for the sale.
These are outstanding opportunities ... for the property owner! All the risk is on the tenant/buyer, and the landlord/seller still retains the house in the event of default or failure to close, in addition to keeping all the money.
In this market, there are few if any such homes available. With properties selling almost as fast as they're listed, why would an owner enter into such an agreement, when he/she can cash out and be done with the place in a matter of weeks? If by chance you ever come across one offered as rent-to-own, it would likely be in a less-than-desirable location, have serious issues, or both.
Contrary to common belief, there is generally a large deposit required (about 20%, non-refundable in the event the sale doesn't materialize), little or none of the rent would be credited toward the down payment, the interest on the sale portion would be at least twice the going bank rate, and you'd still have to qualify for a mortgage in a few years to pay off the owner (it's referred to as the "balloon").
I assume that you're considering this transaction because you do not have a sufficient down payment at this time. The last thing you want to do is to purchase a home on a shoestring, irrespective of financing. I always recommend that potential buyers figure their current monthly expenses to the dollar, then add 15%. If the number is comfortable, it's reasonably safe to proceed. Of course, the down payment would need to be in cash ... I always advise my buyers to have 6% to 8% of the sales price at hand for an FHA-insured loan, to cover all upfront costs including the down payment..
My advice is to lease until you've accumulated sufficient cash to proceed with a purchase. Keep your FICO score at least in the mid-600's (of course, the higher the better) and focus on the objective. You'll be there before you know it. I wish you well.
I would need to know some more information but I'm thinking 3-5k a month.... The market down there is hot right now... Feel free to contact me to talk more about it.
