ANNA  18-015-IL

Age: 4 years

DOB – 7/20/2014

Weight: 71 pounds

State: Illinois

Contact: Mark Howitz 847-541-0166

Anna is a sweet, energetic girl who loved her humans. She is a great car rider, is housebroken, did fine at the groomer (wasn’t thrilled with having her nails done) and could use some work on leash but not bad. She is one very good looking Airedale! She has spent much of her life as an outside dog but would love to spend her time indoors with her new owners. She is healthy and up to date on all her shots. Cats and other critters are definitely on the menu so a home with no other animals is recommended. Anna also has some issues with some other dogs so in her perfect, furever home she would be an only dog. If you have a fenced yard, are home most of the time, and have no other dogs, Anna may be the match for you. Please contact Mark as soon as possible if Anna sounds like your next new best friend.




Ruby 18-007-AR

Age: 1 1/2 years

Ruby is a diamond waiting to be polished. She is currently undergoing training and is doing beautifully. She is food motivated and is anxious to please. Ruby loves car rides and is crate trained. She is very sweet with her humans and is perfectly content to lay her head in your lap and soak up the love. Her trainer says that every time you approach her, she goes in to her tail wagging, tongue out, licking, bouncing, happy dance. Ruby just can’t get too much love. She is making amazing progress in on leash manners and takes to new commands like a duck to water. She really wants to please. As you can see, Ruby is not your typical wire coated Airedale. She is of the Redline variety and is quite a looker.

When she came to SOAR, she was heartworm positive but only a non-aggressive treatment program was required where she is taking medication twice a month but does not need to be crated or kept quiet. She is doing great and just needs to be rechecked in August where we fully expect to receive a clean bill of health. Ruby does not like some dogs but will just ignore others. She will need a home where there are no other animals. Ruby has a typical Airedale big prey drive so critters beware. If you are home most of the time, have an above ground fence and no other animals, Ruby could be the dog for you. If Ruby sounds like the one you have been waiting for, please contact Mark right away.
