Watson (16-013-IL) - Adopted!

Age: 8 years

Weight: 60 pounds

State: Illinois

Contact:  Mark Howitz at or 847-541-0166

Watson is a people friendly guy who was surrendered due to having issues with the resident alpha female Airedale. As a result, he would do best as an only dog. He is fine on walks when other dogs pass. He basically ignores them. He has a typical Airedale prey drive so cats are out. He is housebroken, loves petting, and is up to date on all his vaccinations. He sleeps all night on his bed with his blanket and is happy to greet everyone in the morning. If you have room in your home and your life for Watson, please contact Mark. Watson is waiting for that special home.

Update: We thought Watson had found his forever home but he has been returned to rescue due to previously unknown allergies.

Lisa Marie - Adopted!

Age: 5 years

Weight: 47 pounds

State: Oklahoma

Contact:  Frances Martin at
or 918-836-5508

We are trying to help our sister organization, Oklahoma Airedale Rescue, with the placement of some of their Airedales.  If you are in the SOAR area, please apply to SOAR by completing our Adoption Application.  Transport can be arranged if an adoption is made.

Lisa Marie is an owner surrender that came into rescue with her brother, Elvis.  She lived outdoors with Elvis and three other Airedales and seems to get along just fine with other dogs.

The people at the kennel said they are very sweet.  They are a little shy, but if approached slowly and allowed to warm up to you at her own pace, Lisa Marie is wonderful. Please consider giving her the home of her dreams!

March 4th update:  Lisa Marie is now in a foster home and if things go well, she'll be adopted by her foster family.
