It breaks my heart to type this but I'm looking for a new home for my baby boy, hes a 9 month old doberman. Life hit a curve ball and I have to part way with my baby. Not looking for money. I just want to know hes in a good and loving home.

If he's from a good breeder, it will be in your contract that he be returned to them. Otherwise, turning him over to a Doberman rescue is your best option. If you rehome him privately, neuter him beforehand, if he's not already.

He's beautiful. I know it's hard, but it's a great act of love to realize when you can't provide for a pet and do the work to make sure they find a home where they can thrive - thank you for doing this for him.

I agree with contacting his breeder and, if they can't or won't help, then a breed rescue. Even if there isn't a Doberman rescue local to you, many of them have networks of people they work with to transport and foster in situations like these.

Best of luck!

Some rescues will also do a referral type thing where the dog stays with the owner, they refer potential adopters, and the owner has the responsibility for checking out the applicants and making the decision - never hurts to ask if you'd prefer that sort of thing.

Like said above, first step is contacting the breeder.
Second, if breeder is not willing or able to assist, is a Dobe specific breed rescue.

If you strike out with Doberman rescue, look for a well established bully breed ("pit bull") rescue. While the breeds are quite different in type, most bully breed rescues end up with Dobermans and Rotties due to being familiar with landlord and insurance requirements for such breeds and they generally know how to do their verifications that a breed is allowed in an area or allowed by a landlord.

If you are able to keep the dog until a new home can be found (again, that is if breeder cannot take the dog back) then ask for a "courtesy listing"

The rescue can post the dog to petfinder and their own facebook/website, they can field inquiries for you, vet the applicant and they can handle the adoption paperwork. The key is they will not be taking the dog into their foster network and they will not be reaponsible for any expenses in the meantime.
