Thanks to this great economy, I no longer have the income I used to because my ex was laid off and so I am no longer receiving my child support. I work full time, but it is not enough to pay the bills. He has been out of work for a year now, and I truly see no light a the end of the tunnel for us. I have been hanging in, but my savings is almost gone. I will be forced to move in with family soon. And I don't know anyone that can have a dog. The one that can is highly allergic and said absolutely not. My biggest problem with rehoming my wonderful best friend is that once she is gone, she must stay gone. I have a son with a mental health issue, and he can not have a pet one day, it be gone the next, then it comes back, and then leaves again. That would be devastating to him. He does understand death, we had a frog that died. So I have to be able to tell him that she died. And I will literally be telling everyone she dies so no one screws up and lets it slip. So I can't do a trial run with someone and have it go bad. So I would really need a rescue or someone who would work through any possible issue. She deserves a wonderful home after the abuse that she has suffered in the past. My girl is female dominant. She doesn't just attack other dogs, but if she gets dominant with another dominant dog, there is potential for a fight. She does like larger males, bigger than her has been best, so at least 60#. She is crate trained. Actually she is crated for 9 hours when I'm gone. Can't afford a walker anymore. And she is able to hold it all day. But I don't like that, I'm afraid she will start getting UTI's or worse kidney problems. It's no life for her. But I rent and can't risk her tearing up the walls etc. What makes me sad is that I rescued her from abusive people last year. So I am already her second home. She is fearful of men, but she does warm up to the ones she has the chance to get used to. I got her after my divorce, so she didn't live with him or anything. The other day he came over and she was wiggle butt for him! I told her she was a traitor, but the butt kept going! She does love kids. Although I wouldn't say she is gentle. She will step on you if you lay on the floor, and her claws really hurt when she does it. She walks pretty good, only pulls when she sees critters. She has no idea what to do in a fenced yard. She just stands there and looks in the door like, why aren't you out here with me?" She is a velcro dog, but I think most boxers are. I live in Cleveland Ohio. If you know of legit rescues please let me know. What kind of certifications should rescues have? If they have none, how do I know they are legit? I saw some adds for rescues charging $500 for their dogs. That seems more like selling than rescuing to me. I hope I put everything you would want to know, I'm very upset just thinking about this. Thank you for any help you can give.
