Don't forget to check with your veterinarian. The vet techs are also usually a wealth of information. A number of vet techs will pet sit or foster on the side.

My brother has run into the same situation as you. He and his boxer are out of a home. Hes staying with us but his boxer is aggressive towards our dogs and destructive when left alone, so she cant stay with us. As of right now shes being boarded at a doggy hotel, but its way too expensive considering hes out of a job right now, so after this week if he doesn't find somewhere to take her shell have to go to a rescue group to be adopted out.

Some crate training and obedience/behavior training would be helpful. The money spent on a doggy hotel will more than cover a crate and obedience classes, IMO.

Aggressive/destructive dogs are more difficult to adopt out. Perhaps you can work with your brother and find ways to help your dogs co-exist peacefully?

You have family or friend who could help foster short term? I like other suggestions as vet or rescue that could hook you up with temp fostering. May be a small fee but know dog be well taken care of until make new arrangements. Some animal shelters do use foster homes for over flow but if would stop another dog from a shelter life/death may allow use of them to. I know I am fostering one I sold year ago while man is redoing house and made new garage and patio/kennel so dog can be outside instead of locked in kennel crate during day when at work.
If bought from a breeder see if they do temp foster for you also. I have had this one since February and only going to charge food cost and unsure how to break that out so maybe 1 bag a month unless he decides more.

Local rescue groups have a network of volunteer foster homes who do this free for dogs needing adoption. I bet some would do this for a small fee since they are used to fostering and many would do it so the fees would go back to the rescue group....or if they need the funds themselves. Try this!
