Bengal Cat

I have a household with a Doberman, two domestic cats (male/female) that were raised together and a bengal. We adopted the bengal (unfortunately declawed by previous owner) from a kill shelter in the NJ area, we have a territorial/aggressive male cat that is clawed and immediately from the get-go these two did not get along, we figured it would pass, but unfortunately over the past two years we've had the bengal, it's only gotten worse, both our male and female cat now gang up on him on a fairly regular basis.

We've had issues with him peeing outside of his litter box as well, it happens maybe once a month, except in the summer it seems to happen a couple of times a month. I suspect at some point he was allowed outdoors, when the weather is warmer, he spends most of his time begging to go outside, but we live in a densely populated suburban area, so not willing to do that. We have taken him to the vet on several occasions, he's free from any issues, we've tried everything you could possibly imagine to stop this behavior, beep pads, pheromones, prozac, more litter boxes, different litter boxes. The vet has chalked it up to stress from the other two cats, they occasionally attack him when he's coming out of the liter box. after this diagnosis we went down the prozac route, he's a smart cat and figured it out two days later and wouldn't take them anymore.

So with all that said, I've came to the decision, mainly in the best interest of cat to find him a new home, so he can live in peace. We care immensely about this little guy, we want him to go to a good home, he would love to find an owner who lives in an area where he can go outside!

We will insist on rehoming assistance (lot's of food and treats he likes at the bare minimum).

Details:
Name: Bengie
Age: 4 years.
Dogs: Yes (think he prefers dogs to cats).
Cats: Unsure (Him and our other two don't get along).
Vet: Yes, up to date, he's well taken care of.
Food: Currently on a diet of dry (solid gold) and wet (fresh selects).

I posted this before and someone posted the following questions:

1. How far exactly, are you willing to travel?
A. To the moon if it's the right home, in all seriousness as far as I need to go for the perfect fit.
2. How much longer are you planning to hold onto him?
A. Until he is rehomed, we will not shelter or send this guy to a rescue.
3. How are his urine issues as of now?
A. Similar when in the house with our other male cat. We kept the Bengal in our garage (semi-finished), secluded from the other two cats for close to a month. No accidents during this time period, he does not get along with our male cat at all and refuses to use the litter box whenever he's around.

Personality: He's a very loving, cuddling cat, likes to sleep against our legs at night, he's a great napper, yet loves to play when the toys come out, very talkative (and responds to name), he will greet you everyday you come home at the door. Likes to stand up against peoples legs to get his back scratched.
