I know it's weird for me to join up here and accuse another member of awfulness, but I needed to. I've lurked here for a while, and daily browse the Craigslists in my area for needy Dobermans. I've read the posts by a certain Master_vinnce about his "rescue" dobermans...so it has made me even more shocked than not to find these two ad's on craigslist:
max (1 1/2 yr Red Doberman
Blk/Tan Doberman
What is wrong with this person?! It case he deletes his ad's, there are screenshots of them below. Sorry they are so small, I can't seem to change that. But you see what it is. :mad:

I think it's a good idea to rehome Max. However, I would contact your local Doberman rescue to see if they have room for him. Rescues do thorough home checks, get the dogs up-to-date on vaccinations, spay/neuter, and can provide life long support for the dogs. It will be easier for you, and better for Max in the long run.

I don't know where Stockton is, otherwise I would look up a Doberman rescue for you.

If you are truly concerned about what is best for Max, I urge you to surrender him to a reputable rescue. Rescues do a much better job rehoming dogs and tend to have a better selection of adoptees than craigslist.

I'm not trying to be pushy or rude, I'm just a fan of rescues :)

You're rehoming one of your dogs because you didn't realize you couldn't handle two males. If you couldn't even tell what dog was appropriate for your situation, how can you expect to tell what homes would be appropriate for your dogs?

Please work with a rescue to rehome one of your dogs, they're experienced in matching up dogs with forever homes.

first of all abby its not that i realized that i coulnt handle two dogs
max was in a bad situation and i took him in the only reason i'm rehoming him is becouse my other male showed aggression towards him and i dont want something to happen i'm doing fine walking each dog at sepreate times and keeping them apart so far it's working out but id rather have someone give him 100% of attention

So, if you weren't rehoming raider, why was the ad up there? It was obviously deleted later, so were you indecisive about which one you wanted to give up? I thought you had max for longer, why are letting him go and not Raider? Please, please contact a rescue group. If you aren't in it for the money, and only want whats best for your dogs, then this is what you SHOULD do.

A well-known trait of the doberman breed is same-sex aggression. If didn't know this about them, what else don't you know? How will you be able to judge whether or not a home is right for them?? Giving one of them (or both) up to a rescue would be best all around. Take the high road.

Vinnce- please, please work with a rescue group to help Max. There are scary people on CL. A good rescue will screen homes properly. When I adopted, I went through an extensive process so the rescue could make sure I was a fit home.

Max already came from a bad place. I urge you to please do what's in his best interest to help him so he doesn't end up a statistic :(
