Hi there! My name is Faith and I am looking to win your heart. My mom was so sad to see me go, but she knows that SOAR will find me the bestest home ever. I lived with two Airedale brothers and two Airedale sisters. I only got along with my two brothers so I am hoping if you have another big dog, that he is a boy who likes big Airedale girls like me. I do not like little dogs or cats except to consider them for lunch. Yum. I used to weigh 69 pounds but was down to 59 pounds when I went to the vet last week. I really need to put on some pounds and hope you will help me with that once we connect.
I will give face washes and tail wags and love meeting new people. My ideal new person? Well, I would really like to be with someone who would not need to keep me in a crate for long periods of time. You see, I am an escape artist and can get out of a fenced yard if not supervised and spent a good deal of time in a crate if no one had the time to go out with me and when no one was home. I would be crazy, over-the-moon joyful if my new family had someone who could be home most of the time to tell me what a good girl I was and spend some time with me.
My foster mom is working on my counter surfing skills. Guess I won’t be doing that much longer. I am afraid of loud noises and don’t much care for lawn mowers and weed eaters. Hopefully I can settle down with you long before those things come out again.
I would really like to show you that I can be your faithful friend. I can’t wait for you to read about me and make the call that will change my life.

Check me out! My name is Sonny! I am Faith’s daddy and we make a great daddy-daughter team. I am also looking to make that love connection, but I will need to wait until a little bit while I convalesce with my foster family. You see, I need to have surgery first to remove a big tumor from the top of my head. SOAR said they have a very special Fund that will make sure I get taken care of so I can be ready to meet the family of my dreams. My surgery date is February 12.
Guess where Faith got her likes and dislikes from? :-) I don’t like kitties or small dogs either, but I love to wash faces. I would love to have a family to just hang out with. I would not be much trouble. I would love it even more if you had a girl Airedale for me to buddy with. I have never really been an only dog and I prefer the company of another curly-coated black and tan gal.
Now that I have gotten older, I walk well on a leash. Don’t let my age fool you though. I love to play with tennis balls and still enjoy walks. Did you say you like going for walks also? That would be so awesome. Give SOAR a call, I’m waiting.

My name is Sable and I hope you are in the market for a beautiful soul. Don’t let my long locks fool you. I asked the groomer if I could keep them for now since this winter has been so darned cold, you know. They were very understanding and just gave me a lovely bubble bath, took a few snips, and brushed me out. Don’t you just want to reach through the computer and give me a big hug?
My foster dad says I am such a good girl. It only took me about a day to settle in. I eat nice and do my business on walks with him. He has several doggie beds around the house I can choose from. I love the sofa, especially when he sits down next to me and loves on me. I am a little shy with doggie treats, but I know I will get over that in a bit. He is so nice to me.
He also has a boy Airedale named Harvey who is about my age and Harley, a Lab mix, who comes to visit often. How lucky can a girl get?
I hope my new family will have another boy dog like Harvey or Harley and I would be overjoyed if my new person was home most of the time to give me lots of pets and love. I promise I will love them back. No cats or small dogs please. I still enjoy going for walks just as much as I would enjoy sitting on the sofa with you. Do you have a beautiful soul, too? Let’s get together and compare notes.
Cooper (14-008-AR) - Adoption Pending
Age: Under 1 year
Weight: 54 pounds
This is Cooper, a young, male Airedale who has such a sweet, demure personality for a youngster. You see, Cooper spent the majority of his short life at the end of a leash in a backyard of a breeder, along with his littermate sister. His world was only what he could see and feel from the backyard which did not include a lot of human attention. Before he came to SOAR, he’s never experienced steps, car rides, walks on a leash, how to chase a ball, been groomed, or seeing a veterinary and he is fearful of squeaky toys. Needless to say, Cooper is not worldly and is very tentative around humans and different situations.
On the positive side, Cooper has learned to love peanut butter, his own crate, a soft bed and couch, playing with his foster brother and sister dog, and the human touch as long as it is on his terms - he approaches you. He loves dogs, all dogs, the more playful, the better. Cooper is not alpha dog and loves to play with other friendly dogs, large or small, male or female. And he can smile and it is adorable! Cooper has now been completely vetted and is a healthy youngster.
Anyone interested in Cooper will need to have a quiet adult home without a lot of sudden or loud noises, a fenced backyard and at least another playful dog for him to play with, but the most important quality is PATIENCE while he learns to trust you, learns what it is he should be doing and not doing, and generally learns about the world. I cannot emphasize this enough as he is not going to be that young troublemaker Airedale we all know and love. He will more than likely stay in his crate until he is sure everything is okay and he begins to experience his new home and people.
Cooper is such a sweet, gentle boy and deserves his own forever home with lots of love. We have been working with one of the SOAR doggie trainers and she is very hopeful for his continued progress since peanut butter seems to make all of the fears melt away! Coax and train with peanut butter - that works! And our trainer will be available via phone to help you through any difficulties you will encounter and will work with you on growth goals for Cooper to reach.
We are very hopeful Cooper will be a typical Airedale with time, patience, and diligence to work with him to show him love and help him through his fears. Cooper has a smile for you! Are you his forever home?
