|Good intentions aren't always enough.
You really have 2 options. Find a way to make his life more active or find a home that can do that for him. People that suggest re-homing aren't trying to berate. Sometimes that is the best choice for all involved, and you can't take that personally.
And just because you enjoy or love something doesn't mean having it in your possession is best. I love horses, but I don't have the space for them. Cramming them in a small space and only taking them out occasionally is not good life for the horse, despite my love for them and me doing all possible. I have to find what best for all, and that may not be what makes me particularly happy either.
You have to be honest with yourself. You have a dog that you don't seem to have much time for. I personally wouldn't see the point in having a dog if the majority of its time was spent with caretakers, and I only saw them on the weekends. If this arrangement is temporary, then I see no harm. But if there isn't a foreseeable change, then I just don't think things are going well, and the dog is getting the short end of the stick.
