Meet Miss Sadie!

Sadie is a sweet girl who will be four years old in August. Sadie weighs 57 pounds.  She is in good health, is house trained, crate trained, rides well in the car, and is good with other dogs.  She has had no formal training, but walks well on a leash unless startled, or sees a squirrel dart by (but a sharp “no" stops her pulling).  We are working on basic commands and she is willing to please.  Sadie is very people friendly, comes to see what the family is doing, and thoroughly enjoys a back scratch.  She does like her alone time, and frequently wants to find a quiet spot to herself.  Sadie can be quite animated when she gets excited and she smiles almost all the time!  Her sweet personality is coming out more every day. 

Sadie’s previous home was in the quiet of the country.  At her foster home she is learning about city sounds and street noises.  Sadie has always lived with other dogs similar in size and has done well.  She does not like loud noises, thunderstorms, and is a bit uneasy around clippers and nail trimming.    We think a patient groomer can win her over because she was a gem when bathed and on rainy days she is congenial to letting her foster mom wipe her feet when she comes back inside. 

Sadie was an owner surrender and would do best in a quiet home with someone who can spend time with her, has no cats, small dogs, or young children.

Sadie is ready to shower you with love, are you the person/family that wants to make this pretty girl a member of your family?

My name is Bentley. They say people/doggies with my name are highly imaginative, intuitive, and have personal independence.  Yep! That's me!  To tell you the truth, I am happy to be here in rescue and with my trainer, Michael, but now I really want to go my new forever home.   I am getting the training and discipline to be a dog that can live calmly in a family.  I now have some structure in my life and my trainer says there's hope I can grow up to be the well-mannered, loving Airedale I was meant to be.   I lived with a 13 year old Schnauzer who didn't like me much and I didn't like her either when she tried to pull the "alpha" card on me.  I just went to the vet a few months ago and was neutered, (of course they didn't tell me what that meant, and I thought I was just going for a ride), but they say my testosterone (whatever that is) is subsiding so I'm more calm.

I mainly need a family that is all on the same page as far as my discipline, life structure, and continued training needs are concerned.  I don't like cats and other critters, except I now I know how to, and want to,  play with another dog. I still get a little growly at times with another dog, but I sit down and chill immediately when called on my behavior.  I promise to love, honor, and obey in my new home, all I need is a chance to show what I have learned and continue my education with my new family.

Bentley is currently with a trainer.  He walks well on a leash, knows basic commands, and is getting some practice having manicures and ear cleanings.  Check out the following video of Bentley learning to stay calm while being fussed with:

H! I'm Jazzy and I'm looking for a new forever home.  I lived with my mom since I was nine weeks old, but she got married and had children, and no longer had time for me.  I was a little confused at first because I behave well and loved the children, but she wanted what was best for me.  So I am ready for my new adventure.  People tell me I am a real sweetheart and a gentle soul!  I am housebroken and can be left alone while you are gone.  I love being around children.  I lived with two toddlers and miss them.  I also get along well with other dogs and some cats.  I tried to live with a large bird, but I was not trustworthy with her.  I have been told with my patience and demeanor, I would make a great therapy dog.  Attention and belly rubs are my favorite things.  I am good about being groomed, although I'm not crazy about having my feet combed or clipped.  I spent some time with a trainer when I first came to SOAR to brush up on my training.  I walk well on the leash, know sit, stay, leave it, down, and bang, you're dead.  People really laugh when I do that.  I am very food motivated and will do just about anything you ask when a treat is involved.  I love to play in the yard so would love to have a fence and I love my walks. 

If you want to know more about me or meet me, please contact Mary or Marsha.  I lived with Marsha, her husband, and her three Airedales for a while so she knows all about me. 

I'm the lovely, long-legged girl on the left in the group shot.
