Update: sorry I haven't responded more, I'm a nursing student and I've been cramming for a test all weekend.
Anyway we've come up with a solution. My mom spoke with the people who license her and they said as long as we can keep her up to date with the vaccinations licensing wouldn't be an issue even though they highly suggest keeping her outside to avoid any issues. Right now she is in the house most of the time unless I'm walking her or am outside with her. We will be moving her outside (except at night when she'll be crated). We've started researching wireless/electrical containment since our fences aren't 9ft.
As far as finances, I've found places to do the low cost vaccinations and spaying. So looks like I'll be able to get her all caught up within a month (since restaurant busy season is back) before I have to move her outside. Anyway thanks for all the suggestions and help. I hope I never have to consider re-homing my dog again.

And for the reason why ppl on here recommend "Rescue Rescue Rescue all the time" and strongly stress the importance of checking references for private adoptions is there has been more than one case on this very board where a person came on with a great story, suckered ppl into thinking they were awesome so they didn't check to carefully, and the dogs are dead. One rescue was just busted recently near Philadelphia. She was a very active member pulling dogs from all over and then housing them in less than humane conditions. The internet has opened up the big wide world for twisted people to do more twisted things over a much wider area. It's not an insult to you...not at all...just the realism that you can never know someone just by a persona on the internet.

|jeffreyzan||Why Rescue Rescue Rescue all the time. Why can't I take her. I have had Shepherds since 1987, have 2 currently, just lost one to DM 2 weeks ago. My dogs are my family, I am USAF K9 trained.|

bfree, I just want to chime in with the others about being super careful how/to whom you rehome your dog. In the past when fostering and asking for an adoption fee I was contacted by people who...well...they gave me the willies. Some even argued I should let the dog go for free and I really think they possibly were looking for bait dogs. These are the dogs that the dog fighting people use as 'bait' to train their fighting dogs with. It's still a big underground problem around ATL.
Please take care, you've got some nice people here offering help. So sorry you have to give your pup up, but sometimes letting go is the right thing to do. Hope you are back in a better place financially soon.

I have reached out to the OP.
Sue, would your friend who does rescue (I met her at your training day once) have any interest in this dog?
