What Does It Mean to Rehome a Doberman Pinscher?

To rehome a Doberman Pinscher means that you find your dog a new home when you have to give him up. When you first get your dog, you never imagine that one day you might have to give him to someone else, but life can throw all manner of curveballs. Whether you have to move into a location that doesn't allow large dogs, you've become ill and unable to care for her properly, or you've had financial setbacks, you want to do right by your dog. Rehoming is a good option, but you need to know how to do it.

Know What Your Dog Needs 

The first thing that you have to do when you're rehoming your dog is to think about what needs they have. How much exercise will she need? Does she have any health issues that a new owner will need to know about before they adopt? Does she have any problems with smaller animals? You know her better than anyone, so make sure you list all of the traits of your dog, so you can be sure that the new owner is the right choice before rehoming.

How to Rehome

You have several options when it comes to rehoming your Doberman Pinscher. You might find that you have a friend or a relative that would love to adopt her. As long as they can take proper care of her, this could be a great option. It ensures that she's going to someone who will love and care for her properly. It also means you don't have to worry about charging a rehoming fee since you already know them.

However, if you're going to be giving your dog to someone you don't know, such as someone that you find in your area who wants to adopt, rehoming fees are important. These fees are used to reduce the risk for your dog. Some people want to find free and cheap animals that they can sell to labs or use for fighting. They don't want to pay rehoming fees.

Another good option for rehoming your Doberman Pinscher is to use an online pet adoption platform like Rehome. Part of Adopt-a-Pet.com, Rehome lets you create a profile for your dog with a bio, photos, and videos. Those who want to adopt can review the profile to see whether your Doberman Pinscher would be a good fit for them or not.

With Rehome, you also have control over who gets your dog. You can review all of the adoption applications that arrive and then make your choice. It's free for owners to use the site, as well. Rehome only charges those who are adopting the dog. It's a small fee that's similar to what they would pay at a shelter or a rescue, and the money goes into helping more animals get adopted.

Rehoming your Doberman Pinscher might take some time and some work, but you'll be happier when you put in the effort. You'll know that she's going to a home where people will adore her.
