Ralph (3), Mini Schnauzer in London reluctantly needs a new home 14th Sept '22

Hope you're well?
I'm reaching out to see if you can help with rehoming my pet Ralph. He's almost 3yrs old and whilst I love him dearly, his triggers and impulsive nature, coupled with living in a City are now just a little too much for us to handle.
I feel Ralph will be much happier out of London, away from his triggers and in a more controlled environment with a garden.
high prey drive
Ralph is not good with small children and has lunged and nipped on 2 occasions.
We have worked with trainers and behaviourists over the last 2/3 years and still finding a lot of issues which we think are made worse by living in London, Ralph growing up through lockdown and impact on some socialisaion aspects that COVID limited.
I have been in touch with the dogs trust, but am reluctant to send him to a kennel and would love to be able to know where he is going, what I think would suit Ralph:
Family home with lots of outside space
no young children
quiet area with few distractions
he'd love to be with other dogs
Many thanks and hope to hear from you with any tips/advice on next steps.
