And I have trouble with rehoming a puppy because he isn't what you thought he would be and you want another dog instead. Sorry to be negative, but that's just me.

To be honest, I'm not real sure what the reasons behind the rehome have to do with advice on the rehome itself.
I think we should also keep this in perspective. It is not like I am dropping the dog off at the shelter. He is going to an experienced dog home where he will receive regular vet care and he won't be bred, fought, or abused. Tragic eh?

If you bought him to work and he is unsuited, rehoming him makes sense. Rehoming him because you don't feel like dealing with the pain in the ass stages of development? Not so much. Rehoming because the opportunity to get another puppy has come up and you are picking the puppy over him for the time being... Well, in my book that's just not cool. (Please forgive me if I am not correctly reading between the lines on this one, but from other posts and this, that's what its seeming like)
Sure you are intending to get him back at some point, but foundation work is critical and he's been started. Your father is not you, and though he is very competent it doesn't mean that things will be followed the same way.I think we should also keep this in perspective.

A good, responsible home with vet care. That's great. I'll say the same thing to you that I tell everyone who tells me they want to rehome their dog - a dog's best home is usually where it already is. I don't think this is an easy choice for you, or that you're being flip about it.
Missy - the situation with Gotty was very different
