I used to post on here a long time ago but has been a while so hope you are all well
After losing my 10 year old beautiful Dobe in May I am now able to consider rehoming, although my circumstances since I had my Dobe boy have changed. I will give as much info as poss but if there is anything I have forgotten feel free to point it out!
I now live alone in my own (albeit small) house with garden. I wouldn't consider it fair to have a large dog or one that needs huge amounts of exercise (like my Dobermann) as I live in surbuban Reading so road walking is fine, and have a small park within walking distance but it would be a car trip to big parks or countryside etc.
I do work fulltime but work 99% from home - with the odd occasional day needed in either London or Guildford (normally 2 days a month max). I could take a dog to office in Guildford and I do have family in Reading who could look in, let out or walk if necessary on the odd occasion if I needed to go to london.
I have no other pets, although live in a place where EVERYONE seems to have cats and wierdly for suburbia I do have a muntjack that comes in the garden from time to time. I do very occasionally have young children visiting but only my nephew and niece and so rarely or for so little time that I thought worth mentioning but is easily surmountable.
As well as posting on here, I am going to go and have a look around rescues and see if there is anything suitable. I am ready for this to take time to find the right thing as I realise due to being on my own, it has to be the right match but I do believe that I could offer a lovely home to the right dog and I'm not even sure whether rescues would rehome as I live on my own.
At the moment, I am thinking that the best match would probably be a small to medium sized dog, probably past puppyhood, although I have been through that before so would consider but whether rescue would consider me I do not know. I have had family dogs all my life and had my Dobe from an 8 week old puppy when with my partner. I also trained as a vet nursing assistant in sussex so I hope people would view me as a suitable candidate despite being a one person unit It's also fairly important that any dog I had was ok with car travel as I would like to travel for walks to countryside and take him/her if visiting friends.
Anyway, any advise gratefully received, it's been a long time since I did this
