There are dogs in shelters because people get tired of them, feel they are too much work, or that they are not what they thought they would be. Sometimes people grow out of their dogs. They get puppies and it is way cool, and then they wake up one day and the puppy is no longer as cool as they thought it was and they are on to the next thing that is way cool; a horse, a motorcycle, a dog of a different breed, a new puppy, or a dog that better suits their newest phase.
Not everyone has a sister that will take the dog. Not everyone cares what will happen to the pup now that it's cute puppy stage is over. Once they decide to get rid of the dog, they no longer care what happens to it. Maybe they ask if the shelter is no-kill, but really, once they decide, they just divorce themselves. No one is suggesting that is what you are intending to do with your dog.
I think that it is your description of her as your heart-dog and then talking about getting rid of her after a week of training that did not go the way you wanted it to.
I am a little disturbed that you see a well-bred dog, and you are ready to give away your dog so you can get one like that. Well bred or not, a dog is still a personality, and if you can live with a dog for a year and then see another dog in action and consider clearing the floor to open space for one like that, well, IDK, I guess you really wouldn't have posted this thread if you thought nothing of it.
I think if this thread started with, "My sister really loves Mina, she wants a dog, and since we have gotten Heidi, I am starting to see what the other people have been telling me about her not being cut out for the sport. So I am really considering letting my sister have this dog, because I know that she will be just perfect for her. And then I will be looking for a dog like Heidi who will be able to work to the level that I want to be at." -- I think this thread would have gone a little different.
We are a site of dog lovers here, the other stuff, sport, showing, etc, is really secondary.
