Default Have to rehome almost 10 month old

Our worst nightmare has happened. We had to move because of my girlfriends job and are now in Phoenix AZ and cannot find a place we can afford that will accept a GSD. Ambros is was born on May 2nd 2013 and we have had him since he was 9 weeks old. I hate doing this we love him so much but unless we can find somewhere that we can keep him we will all be homeless. Any advice or anyone in Arizona that might be able to take him I'm here for questions.

are you on FB? there are many german shepherd groups that might be able to help you out. Or maybe help you find a rental in AZ.

Hope you can find a place so you can keep him

This was written for pit bulls, but it has some good pointers: Renting with Your Dog | BAD RAP

I Am but I don't know anybody down here at all. Let alone anyone who can take him. And my fear is someone will take him and he won't be treated right.

I live in Chandler, AZ (a southeast suburb of Phoenix). We just moved here last summer and are renting a house in the area and didn't have any problems with a cat and dog, but it did take some searching. We were relocated for my husband's job and went through a realtor provided by his company. We didn't want to buy yet until we knew the area better. Try looking on trulia.com and/or zillow.com for homes to rent that allow dogs. I really hope you find a place for your pup! We just got our first GSD who is now 11 weeks so we can't take on another right now but I can certainly ask around for you or help in anyway I can. We are working with a great trainer in the area and I can ask him if knows anyone looking for a good GSD, but I really hope it works out for you to keep him. Welcome to Arizona! You will love it here! We used to live in Ohio ourselves (Wooster) and are so glad to be out of the snow! What part of Phoenix are you in?

We can't afford to rent a house. She has her job but I no longer have mine so our income is low right now. We are in Phoenix by Glendale at the moment. We are actually staying in a hotel that allows dogs.

spoke to some people about your situation and I know someone that might be interested in taking him, but have some questions. Has Ambros been socialized to kids, other dogs, etc? Will you send me a pm with your contact info?

Keep looking for a small house from every source possible, craigslist, local paper, property management companies,ect. You should be able to find a older house that would except a dog. You might have to drive a little farther. Also, you could purchase renters insurance that might help convince a landlord you are responsible.

my co-worker moved to Arizona and found a rental house on craigs list that allowed her two pit mixes. It's something to look into. I hope you find something.

Let me know your zip code and maximum monthly price range. I will find you a dog friendly house to look at. You can PM me that info, if you wish. I would like to help you keep your Shepherd.
