I don’t know what/if you have decided yet, but I think you should pursue rehoming your dog to a wonderful fit FOR HER. Find someone who does have the appropriate lifestyle, stable conditions, money, and energy/desire to help her though those issues. I would also suggest that you should try to find someone who has been stable in that lifestyle for a while (nothing against younger dog owners-I’m one myself), but the odds need to be in your dog’s favor that she will have the best chances at stability long term. Plus, older owners will more likely be LESS LIKELY to want a drastic change of lifestyle, such as moving/adding a child/changing careers and schedules.
I think that it is good that you can realize that you are not a good dog owner and try to do what is best for the dog. I do hope that you will keep that in mind the next time you want or think you are ready for any addition to your family (because cats and rabbits, etc still require love and attention). I’m not saying that you will never be ready or always be a bad owner, but hopefully you can go in a little more “eyes open” next time 🙂
