Rehoming our dogs

I wanted to reach out because after a lot of thought and consideration, my spouse and I have decided to rehome our two Dobermans.

It was not an easy decision, but we think that they belong with an owner or owners who can give them the attention they deserve and the space they require. We love them like our kids and we will be as patient as it takes for them to go to the right home.

They are attached to each other like us humans are - and while we are willing to give them a better home, we will not separate them.

Our sweet dogs are:

Dexter, red male Doberman, 80 lbs, 2.5 years, neutered. We raised him from a puppy and he is super sweet, listens and walks very well, and loves people. He is obedient and loves to play (hide and seek, chase, etc.). He is fairly submissive and in a group of dogs, he is almost never the alpha.

Edie, black female Doberman, 70 lbs, 4.5 years, spayed. Our rescue dog. She's confident, defends the house, and is incredibly loyal. She is very friendly and loving to people after the first few minutes. She LOVES to cuddle. She is difficult but not impossible to walk, and would be best with an owner who knows how to handle dogs.

Both dogs are house trained and have no health issues.

Not being critical. My question is: Why? I have no problem with folks finding a caring and responsible new home for their dog. Yet, generally there is an underlying reason, which would be essential information for a potential new owner,

Also... do you want to re-home them separately or together.

A few other questions:
Where are you located?
And... Have you contacted a local Doberman rescue group? As opposed to just throwing this out to the community?

what does Dexter's breeder have to say about this? i would refer to your contract regarding rehoming him - he may have to go back to the breeder.

if not, you NEED to contact a reputable Dobe rescue in your area.

In addition most rescue organizations include a clause in the adoption contract that says a dog must be returned to them if the adopter can no longer keep the dog.

Jacob it must be a tough decision but in these type of situations a deeper explanation of why would motivate others to help in solutions to keeping your family intact or greater success in your dobes second life.

These are gorgeous dogs in what appears to be a lovely home. Have you considered doggie boot camp/finishing school, so they are well trained and easy on the leash and obedient? Maybe that would solve some issues for you...whatever they are. You've obviously put time and resources into their lives.

it's been 2 months and he hasn't returned. i'm going to guess he placed them.
