Regretfully Looking for a New Home for 12w Old DS

My apologies if the is inappropriate, but my family recently purchased a 12 week old ds from a breeder and have come to the conclusion that we are unable to adequately raise and train her. Aside from the tremendous guilt it has caused us to do so, we are looking for a good home for her to end up in.

She has has all her necessary vaccinations up to this point and has received a clean bill of health from two vets in the last week. Additionally, we have not had any violent incidents with her to believe she is a safety risk. With three children at home under 5, we simply make a mistake in taking her in and believing we have the energy and time to keep up with her.

If anyone on this forum is interested in taking her into their home as a permanent residence, we live in Missouri and I would be more than happy to drive part or the full way to help find her a good new home. I am not looking for any money and am willing to pass along all paperwork we received from the breeder and vets, as well as all our food and supplies we have purchased up to this point.

Please respond to this post or message me if you are interested and want more information or have a recommendation for other avenues to find her a good home. Thank you.

You might check with your breeder to see if they can take her.

The North American Dutch Shepherd Rescue (www.dutchshepherdrescue.org) or Malinois Dutch Shepherd Rescue (www.madrescueinc.org) may help find a qualified family.

Finally, you might check with local professional K9 trainers to see if they know someone who is prepared to have a great pup like her.

I would offer, but we are too far away and maxed out on doggies :)

I also wanted to add that this month is Tongue Out photo theme. Maybe having her photo in the contest would get more eyes on her.

Ditto reaching out to local trainers!!! Just start off with a simple Google search for dog trainers in your area and start reaching out to them. I would bet in short order you'd find someone that's interested and has the appropriate time and knowledge!
