Thanks everyone. The last thing I want to do is give him to a shelter or a rescue. I love this dog and I'm not going to give up on him. He's mine and I'll do whatever it takes to keep him. Right now I'm not expecting to have enough money for a deposit and first months rent for my own place any time soon, because I’m trying to avoid racking up more interest and late fees. I don't have any family here who could help either.
I'm treating this as a real post for help. If it is, please seek out much more reasonable options. Stop paying a dog walker and look for the least expensive housing you can afford that allows your dog. See if you can stay with friends or family. If you want to keep your dog, do everything in your power to cut costs to do so. Are you eating ramen and beans and rice to cut your budget down? What other ways can you cut costs?
Is it true that he needs to have a long list of qualifications to be a stud? As a beginner, how long does that take? How do I find people with a Doberman bitch in the area who want Doberman puppies. He's been humping everything in site including my guests, children, and a motorcycle. He actually humped the little boy so hard he got hurt and he humped the motorcycle so hard that it fell on him and injured his leg. I remember the sex drive I had as a teenage boy and I want him to have opportunities to relieve his urges in a healthy way that doesn't harm anybody or himself. There’s no way I’m going to neuter him, I don’t believe in that anymore.
Yes, he has no "qualifications" that would make him useful to the breed as a stud dog. Additionally, please put in the time and effort to train your dog. What you're describing is poor behavior. He does not need to have "opportunities" to do anything other than have better manners. If you cannot train and manage him, he needs to be neutered. Responsible owners train and manage their dogs to be good representations of the breed. An out of control humping machine reflects poorly on his owner and the breed as a whole.
How can I find people and businesses that are interested in hiring a 6’2” security guard with a Doberman? Any other income producing ideas for me and him separately or together?
I appreciate all your help in advance and I’m sure I’ll find some way to repay you for any advice that can help us succeed at getting back on our feet.
This is completely unrealistic. While it's possible that YOU might find a job as a security guard with no training or skills (and that's not going to pay well), no one in their right mind is going to put an untrained dog (who, incidentally, has zero manners, apparently) in a position as a guard dog. That takes years of training, and dog that is in a role to be a true guard dog needs to have an absolutely rock solid temperament, seriously fantastic skills in obedience, as well as skills in protection work. That takes YEARS of work. Not to mention the potential legal liabilities of that kind of training. That's not something that's a "quick fix."
If you can figure out a way to make a budget and take care of your dog, that's wonderful, but you need to train and manage him appropriately, too.
Around here, we do have some resources for pet owners who have fallen on hard times - there are things like food banks for pets. If you are truly in dire shape, you might look into that kind of help. Or, it may be simply things like switching to a less expensive food, making a really tight budget, and really getting a handle on how you can make this work.
Please stop looking to your dog to fund anything.
