I have a two year old neutered doberman, black and tan. He is a great dog. I have a 10 month old baby and he is so good with her. However, I have to relocate to Indiana and the place I am going I cant take him. I hate doing this but I want him to go to someone who understands dobies. He is a little chubby. He hasnt gotten as much exercise since I had the baby. His name is Max and he is a good dog. He knows basic commands but could definetly learn more. He is good on a leash. I just want him to go to a good home, I dont want just anyone to have him ( which is why I wont post on other websites). Let me know if you know anyone. I am in Riverside County, CA you can message me if interested.

Your close to me unfortunately I don't have the means to afford a 3rd big dog at the moment and have a nearing 6 month old dobie male. Hopefully he finds a wonderful home :)

are there any rescues in your area. That is honestly your best bet. I had to give up one of my babies recently and I chose rescue and she is doing amazing and they are keeping me up to date on her so it has made the situation alot easier on me.

Thank you for all your help, as far as rescues go... they dont just give him to anyone right?

No they are VERY choosy, more so than most breeders I think.  We had to have a home inspection and fill out a long application and sign an agreement.  They want to make sure that the dog goes to a good FOREVER home.

I adopted a rescue rottweiler and I can assure you a good rescue will check out the person thoroughly, call vets to make sure that person keeps their own animals up to date showing proper care from the person towards their animals, call personal references, do a home check to see if everything is safe and in order for a new addition. Rescues can sometimes be too hard on people wanting to adopt so a good home should be found with now worries.....they do not take them and then just give to whomever pays an adoption fee - that is not how it works. Hope that helps you feel more comfortable with rescue groups. You can also ask how they screen potential adopters to see if you feel good about that particular rescue .....do not hesitate to ask how they screen their adopters......if they won't answer move to another rescue who will.....Go to their website see if they have an adoption form online if so read it to see what questions are asked initially and see how you feel about the initial questionaire....

That rescue will probably be pickier than you about who gets your dog....Give them all his info and be honest and they will match him with someone compatible.
