as long as she does not have a reported bite history IDR + may take her back they best thing to do is contact them. It is in the contract that the owner is required to return her to IDR + if they are unable to keep her.
Owner Surrender | Illinois Doberman Rescue

Due to insurance requirements IDR + is unable to rehome an animal with a bite history.

I am sorry about yesterday's comments...I honestly wasn't in the best state of mind....I was going through a few things at home and I think that just made me be defensive about everything....S*** happens and I make mistakes.

Sorry again to Gatehouse

I also want to reiterate the need to contact the rescue. If she can be rehomed, distance is not always an issue. Lots of rescues arrainge long distance transports regularly.

I hope you are successful in rehoming your girl. I think you will all be better off. I can't imagine the stress you are under right now.

Yep, unfortunately been there, done that, got the teeshirt and whilst it was not a perfect solution it sure as hell beat someone getting bitten.

One of my cousins asked my mum to childmind her little boy whilst she went out to work. Mum was at home, thought the money would come in handy, wanted to help her out so child came each morning at 7.30am and stayed till Dad picked him up at 6pm.
Unfortunately one of my mums Show Dogs took a dislike to the boy, why we do not know, as far as we could tell he hadnt done anything to her, but dislike him she did. (she was well socialised by the way).
Anyhow the only way the 2 could be in the same house was for dog and child to be kept seperate. In this case the dog stayed in the kitchen area with access to the back garden whilst the little boy (he was 3) stayed in the front room which had access to the front garden (fenced off) so never the twain met, literally.

Was it easy, nope, not one bit, we had to be careful the dog didnt run through into the rest of the house, but it worked and no instances of dog bites happened on mums watch so to speak.

I truly wish you all the best in this endeavour, if however, the solution of keeping them apart truly feels wrong for you and yours I would contact the rescue you got her from. They may have someone waiting in the wings who is an experienced Dobe owner who will know how to help your girl overcome her demons.

I spoke to the intake coordinator at IDR +. It does sound as if she would be best placed in a home with no children. IDR + will and would take her back but the distance is an issue. Is there a reputable doberman or all breed rescue that would be willing to list her as a referral on petfinder to facilitate placing her?

Dobejazz - thanks so much for taking an interest in this. I see there is a Doberman Rescue of New England so I will find out if IDR would be ok if we work with them. We are actually flying out to Illinois to visit family - so hopefully I can conveniently visit them in person while I'm there.

In the meantime, we're getting practice keeping Frieda and our son separated and teaching him not to play with her or hug her. It's heartbreaking to separate them when they want to be together
