Is this because of insurance too? I'm too far and I'm sure rotts are a breed that is hard on insurance rates. Are there any friends you can loan her to for a week or so, maybe she could even rotate from house to house each week. Then no one would really have to say they own her. it would take about 4-5 houses willing to share the dog. Then each house could have a specific week of the month that they got the dog.
