Need to rehome 2 year old female in WI
 
We have made the very hard decision to rehome our 2 yo female. She is trying to be the alpha with our 7 yo male. She isn't fixed (please do not hate - we are financially having alot of issues and may end up losing our house) and can't afford to get her fixed. We have tried to go to spay and neuter clinics but we make too much and are not on any types of public assistance.

Anyway, we have tried different behavior modifications, more play time, more one on one time, everything other than hiring a trainer (which we can't afford). She is a great dog and knows basic commands and will play fetch for hours (if our arms would last that long). She has ALOT of energy. She is territorial and will bark if someone comes near the fence in our back yard and has to have a muzzle put on if someone comes in the house (this is more for our peace of mind). She hasn't bit anyone. This is why I would prefer to have a rescue or someone that is used to this type of behavior and not put her on craigslist or give her to a friend that isn't used to a GSD.

I have contacted the area GSD rescues but only a few have responded and are not able to take another rescue in.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

my suggestion would be, to have her spayed prior to placing her, charge that as a fee for the dog.

Check with your local vets offices, sometimes they have clients looking to adopt.

Unless a rescue takes her, I would not place her unspayed, and I would be very thorough in checking references of potential adopters.

What about the breeder you got her from? Also check with local training centers they may know of adopters.

** added, just read some of your previous postings, so this girl has had two litters of puppies. Definitely get her spayed, rehome her or sell your two young puppies to cover the cost of spaying. I guess it bothers me, that you've had two litters of pupppies, kept a couple, and now because she has behaviorial issues you want to rehome her...

Agree with everything Diane said above - and did you try White Paws? They take dogs from all over. White Paws German Shepherd Rescue, Wisconsin Someone on this board is part of that group too....

Maureen is the person - maybe PM and then contact them.

Where are you located in WI? Where is the dog from? Any ideas on the lines?

PM me the information if you don't want to share it on the forum. I have some resources that we could work with.

We have recently gotten rid of the puppies to a family members. Sorry that is bothers you but we are doing the best that we can financially.

Mid- Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue - they have a non-magsr page for owners. Check with them as well. magsr.org

I checked with Mid-Atlantic and they cannot take any more rescues in at this time. :(

Mid Atlantic is in Maryland. They can do a courtesy post, as most rescues will. You need to recheck with White Paws and see if they will courtesy post her on petfinder for you or if they will take her if you continue to keep her until a home is found.

Check the Michigan and Minnesota rescues as well. You need to look much close to you than Maryland.

What is her pedigree? Is she registered? Where is her breeder?
