Guys, just want to pop in here and say, don't totally stifle him. I'm pretty sure that the OP is *trying* to do the right thing. He has expressed open-mindedness and is willing to listen. Don't throw that away because he made bad decisions. I am as grieved as the next person that he supported a byb and now is giving up his dog, but you're never going to really help him by throwing in so much negativity. Positive, constructive reinforcement, it works with humans too! Just a thought.

To the OP, I would definitely encourage you to seek out a rescue like Aztec. They are reputable and will help you find the best possible home for your boy. I know you want that.

Rockstar, goofus extraordinaire and Annie, the vicious accomplice!

At the risk of sounding redundant, I think rescue would be the best option for your boy. You say he's wary of strangers? That could turn into a problem, and if you try rehoming him yourself he could end up having multiple homes in just a few short years. I know that's not what you want for him. The average dog owner may not know how to work with issues like that, and a reputable rescue *should* be very thorough with finding him a dog savvy home.

Please keep us updated on what happens!


(I know I haven't posted in a long time...just been checking the rescue section mostly.)

Need help rehoming my boy.

Hi, my name is Lei. I have a male Doberman who will be 2 soon. He's cropped and docked. But isn't neutered yet. Was going to do that soon... but.. now I need to give him to a good home. My fiancée and I just cant seem to find the time to walk him. He's very high energy and really needs it. He's absolutely stunning! And it breaks my heart to think of getting rid of him. My 4 yr old son and him are best friends. I've already contacted Triad and am waiting on a response. But I thought I could try here also. I live near Palm Springs in southern California. Any southern cali dobi owners out there who can help? Please let me know. I love him so and only want the best for him! Thanks!

whew! thanks guys for all the posts! I see people calling me a him. I'm female. And very sorry I haven't responded!! I haven't logged back on since the post. My apologies!. And im very glad that so many people on here really care and are willing to help. I ended up keeping my Leo boy. But NOW NEED to rehome him! He's gotten a lot better with his mischievous self, but my fiancée is more of the problem than the dog is. He doesn't know how to handle him and id rather him go to a good home than be mistreated. I actually just posted on the rescue page, then found my old posts. So sorry for the double posts.

And thanks for making me understand that selling him isn't the way to go. I'm learning a lot from you guys. oh just to correct something else, The puppy price was only 500. not 2500. the larger amount was a total spent on him. ( for crop, dock, shots, food, etc, everything.) the amount is much higher now lol but that doesn't matter. as long as he's loved and taken care of.

You got a lot of good responses in your other thread that you have resurrected. Please contact a local rescue to ensure that an appopriate home can be found for Leo.

I find it very ironic that your last thread about having to find another home for Leo was exactly 1 year ago today.

I'm afraid I'm nowhere remotely near you so I can't help with rehoming.

I will suggest however - Go ahead and neuter your boy. That'll be one less expense the rescue has to deal with, and it'll show good faith on your part.

Also, have you looked into other options? Obviously, I don't know you or your situation, so please bear with me if you've already considered all these but

1. Could you or your fiancée wake up 30min earlier to get a morning walk in, then the other could walk him in the evening? Or if it would have to be your fiancée who walks him, maybe you could take over one of her chores to balance things out? (My husband and I do this - I take our son to daycare and pick him up and hubby walks Delta. I also literally have a chore chart on the fridge so I can remember what I'm supposed to handle that day! )

2. Is there a doggie daycare near your home or work where he could get some exercise during the day?

3. Is there a trusted neighbor or a dogwalking service who you could pay to walk your dog over lunch every day?

If the only issue preventing you from keeping your beloved boy is needing more time to exercise him, that might be something you could work around!

Best of luck to you and your handsome dobe.

If you make the move out to Louisiana before you are able to rehome him there are rescues out here too.

Just a thought if you can't trust your fiance around your dog, I hope you are doing some serious thinking in regards to this man being the man you want to marry.

I can't imagine having to be in the position you are in. I hope you are able to make some positive changes for yourself.

Yeah if I was with a man who was "the problem" the man would be going, not my dogs. I married a man that wasn't always great with my dogs, nothing major but enough that I got a weird feeling. I ignored it, and he turned out to be abusive toward me (not long after we got married his true colours came out), thankfully I got out in time.

My dogs are as valued as my human children, you don't get rid of children because a newcomer to your life causes problems...you get rid of the person causing those problems to your family.

Teach your fiancé how to deal with your dog, if that's the problem it's not a worthy reason to get rid of a dog. I had to train my hubby (2nd one now) how to properly handle the dogs, he just wasn't a dog person, but he learned and now he's great with them. If the problem is bigger than just not knowing how to deal with him then I certainly wouldn't want to be with him.

Weird...so the original post of this thread, and the "update" today with wanting to re home again are exactly one year to the date apart lol. Just noticed that.

I think if (per your other thread) your fiancè's behavior towards your dog is alarming, you might want to look seriously at your fiancè's behavior towards other living creatures, yourself included. It might be best for you and Leo to stay together, rehome the fiancè.

While it's your responsibility to find your dog a home, IMO, it's not a bad idea to contact a rescue for assistance. The rescue group can give you some tips or a checklist of things to look for in a potential new home for Leo. Things like do they have a fenced yard, small children, doberman experience etc. It's also imperative that you check references like the new owner's vet and dog trainer.

Definitely neuter him regardless of who you rehome him with. If money is tight you can ask for a "rehoming fee" to cover the cost of the neuter and to ensure he's not going to some hoodlum or dog broker.

If I were to sell my dog to recoup my expenses on him I would have to sell him for $10,000.

I'm glad the people on this forum changed your mind, and you're thinking for the betterment of the dog, not your money.

I hope you can find a reputable rescue for your dog, so that they can find a forever home for him.

Never look down on someone, unless you are helping them up

Please remember their are people that would pay for him to be a bait dog training their Pit Bulls to fight can you spot them, can you check out the house where he is to live, can you get vet reference's. rescues know how to find good homes for their dogs he deserves a good home.

Ah, my bad on pronouns yesterday. In my own defense... fiancée is feminine. Fiancé is the masculine. ;P

My husband is not as good with Delta as I am - I trained her, so she listens better to me. He doesn't train her and then wonders why she doesn't do what he wants. I'm like "have you EVER TRIED rewarding her??" :eyeroll:
BUT he adores her, he plays with her, he was on board with the idea of getting her back when we were dating... I can't imagine dating, much less marrying someone who would actually mistreat a dog.
I know you probably aren't going to like this, but it might be a good red flag to examine. Obviously, I don't know him, but... is he really the guy you think he is?
If it's a "me or the dog" ultimatum, I vote the dog.
