Looking for a cute 7-year old?  You have come to the right place.  I used to live with Bosco, and I am now staying with Sonny until we all find our new homes.  If you have another Airedale or larger dog, I would prefer that he be of the male persuasion.  If you would like me all to yourself, I hope you are home lots.  I also hope you do not have cats…the only way I like cats is for lunch.

I still have a lot of life left and a lot of love to give.  Just give me some time to adjust to my new family.  Won’t you be my new family?

My name is Bosco and I want to be your new best friend!  I used to live with four other Airedales.  I got along with the girls, but not the boy.  I could probably get along with another female Airedale if properly introduced, but I could also dig being a best friend to a family of humans as well.  I absolutely do NOT want a cat in the picture though.  I have some arthritis in my hips, but that does not slow me down.  Interested yet?

I did tear up some cushions from the couch so I can't be trusted alone, but my foster my is working on my bad habits.

My foster mom is going to keep you updated on my life, so check back often! 

From the foster family:
Bosco just returned from trotting alongside my son on his skateboard, around the block three times and he's not even breathing hard, he did great,  in fact my son was the one breathing hard, lol. This was the first time we introduced him to skateboard. He slept by my bedside on the floor last night, no crate as he was barking when we went to bed, so I just put him on leash so he stayed near me, he was fine slept through the night on a white fluffy rug.

WOOF!  My name is Mojo, and if there is any Airedale who deserves a loving, happy home, it’s me! I’m just a few weeks from my 4th birthday and would love nothing more than to celebrate with a fur-ever home!  I’m a good-sized boy – 68 pounds of stud!  I love people, and I can be found following my foster family around the house or lying at their feet with a bone, (and if I can get a night or two in your bed, I’m really in heaven!).  A family who can spend quality time and not leave me alone for long periods of time would be my best fit – can’t blame me for loving you!  Long walks and time to play outside are two of my favorite things because prior to rescue, I was chained in a small outdoor pen for 3+ years. 

I love a good bowl of wet and dry food mix, but I’m easy.  I play well with other dogs, but my foster family feels I would do best as an only dog or with another laid-back, older pup because I love attention!  I would do best with kids age 10+ due to my tendency to protect my blanket or bone, etc. and need children who would understand and respect that need.  I recently got a nice clean cut at the groomer, and they said I was the most handsome and well-behaved Airedale they had ever met.  I do great in the car, am able to be kenneled for a short time if needed, and use a doggie door like a champ.  I’m also learning to sit and stay – hot dogs are my favorite treats.  I truly have the sweetest disposition, and I roll over at the first chance to get a tummy rub.  Please give me a chance at being a part of your family – I will make you the happier than you ever thought you could be!


 

Rusty (14-011-OH) - Adoption Pending

Age: 3 years  (DOB 4/12/11)

Weight: 85 pounds

Sex: Male

State:  Ohio

Contact: Marsha Roush at 937-477-5725 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Hi! I'm Rusty and I'm a happy, handsome, big guy looking for a new home. I am a typical Airedale young guy with lots of energy and anxious to please my new family. Because of my size and exuberance, I would be too much for small kids but would be great with older kids and adults - I love people and attention. I have been to obedience class, and am housebroken. I'd be happy as an only dog, or if introduced correctly, I wouldn't mind another large dog buddy. I'd be great at rally or obedience, and could eventually be a great agility dog. Or I'd be a super partner for walking, jogging, or playing with you. I was surrendered because I did not make a good bird hunter, although I have a high prey drive and cannot live with cats, small dogs or other small critters. I am an easy keeper, and eat only dry food and Milkbones for treats. I have a sensitive stomach that does not do well with wet food or people food. I love car rides, and my previous owner said I do well off leash at the doggy park. I would love to find my new forever family, so please give Marsha a call or an email for more information. Thanks!


 

Kloe (14-001-IN) - Adoption Pending

Age: 7 years

Weight: 81 pounds

Sex: Female

State:  Michigan

Contact: Lynn O’Shaughnessy, 517-546-8303, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Kloe came into rescue on January 1 with a torn ACL.  Her family could not afford the surgery, but SOAR was able to give Kloe the surgery she needed.  Kloe is now in a foster home and has begun rehab to get the strength back in her back leg.  It is our hope we can find a home for her near her foster home so she can continue her rehab.  If not, we will wait at least four weeks until she has finished with the plans we have for her.  Her new home may still need to continue with some rehab, but that should not be a problem.  Kloe is a sweetie.

Kloe is a BIG girl and not at all fat.  She has a wonderful personality and gets along with the other three dogs in her foster home.  We have not heard so much as a grumble out of her even when the rehab vet, Dr. Mary, had to manipulate her legs to measure her range of motion.  Kloe is a quick learner and is very food motivated.  She loves to work for treats.  She knows sit really well as that is part of her rehab (sit…stand…sit…stand…sit…stand…you get the idea).  She still needs work on walking nicely (she is very strong and can pull like a horse if she wants to), but until she is further along with rehab, that will have to wait.  Right now she needs to walk with a sling loosely hanging under her belly because of the snow.  We can’t have her slipping.

Kloe has personality plus as you can see from the photos.  Would you like to make her a part of your family?


 

Faith (14-005-IN) - Adoption Pending

Age: 8 years

Weight: 58 pounds

Sex: Female

State:  Ohio

Contact: Lynn O’Shaughnessy, 517-546-8303, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Sandy Check at 317-259-7701 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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. 


Sonny  (14-003-IN)

Age: 9 years

Sex: Male

Weight: 62 pounds

State: Indiana

Contact:  Lynn O’Shaughnessy at 517-546-8303 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Sandy Check at 317-259-7701 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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.
