After weeks of agonising over it we have decided to re home our doberman. He is 5 and an amazing dog. Great with people, very friendly and loveable. He likes plenty of attention and is a house dog for sure. Chipped and vaccinated but not neutered. I am not sure about how to go about it as I think his age goes against him. Obviously I dont want to put him in any kind of shelter but not sure what to try?

Sorry to hear you have to rehome ur dog, must be very hard to do it. Sometimes the lost and found companies will advertise on their Facebook pages that you have a dog to rehome, might be worth a try

Paws Trust is another one. Please whatever you do not put him in any type of pound. Why do you have to rehome? Has he behavioural issues?

Awww, the poor fella. I just read JustJess' linked post and it sounds like he suffers from anxiety. Rehoming him will probably cause him a whole lot of stress. Have you tried behaviour training for his anxiety issues? Once the dog is happier and more settled then rehoming him will cause him less pain and you might be more inclined to keep him. If you're set on giving him away be sure that the shelter he goes to are aware that he suffers from anxiety so they're better able to rehabilitate him while there and that they ensure that he goes to a loving home who can deal with his specidic issues when rehomed.

I have 2 cats,one thinks it's alright to tip me on the face and wake me up anytime from 5/6 in the morning.If i don't give her attention she cries and knocks stuff off my locker.I have her 6 years and there's not a chance i'd look to re home her.To me,she's part of my family,even though she drives me mad in the morning,I wouldn't put myself or her through the trauma of uprooting her to a different family. I don't mean to sound harsh,but really think this over,i think it would be very traumatic for the dog,and possibly yourself.
