" I also know of dobermans that cost their owners more than $1000 that were dumped into rescue."

I think you mean "surrendered", rescue organizations do not typically deal with "dumped" or abandoned animals. Legally a rescue organization has no authority to collect, hold or deal with unattended stay dogs, they are assumed and considered property until declared abandoned by animal control. Rescuing a stray could be considered theft since a domestic animal is considered property.

So the correlation that you are trying to make from your experience with a recuse organization with regards to dumped or abandoned animals may not be accurate.

Surrendering a pure breed doberman to a rescue organization that specializes in rescuing dobermans doesn't seem wacky or irresponsible to me. Isn't that your charter?? If I wanted my doberman to go to a doberman lover that is exactly what I would do. It would be worth the $1000 to me to ensure that my dog went to a good home.

Now if I didn't care about the welfare of the animal then that $1000 just might keep me from dumping him.
