Lizzie is a three year old, 65 lb., spayed female who needs an Airedale experienced family that will continue her training. She is choosy about her dog companions and would do best with a non-reactive male dog her size. She did not do well on a cat test. She reacts towards small dogs and cats when out in the front yard, as well as skateboards, cars and trucks.
She’s done great in the house when we are home, she listens, settles well, eats next to our older Airedale, etc., all without a problem. Add the younger Airedale into that mix and she goes after him. She hates, hates, hates being crated and gets quite destructive to anything she can get to while in the crate (including the crate).
She is very smart and picks up on things very fast. She opens the door and lets herself out. She can open up gates, drawers, cabinets, etc. She sits, lays, walks on a leash now all very easily. She takes things nicely (treats). We are working on the jumping on people and now she jumps up kind of in front of you instead of putting her feet on you. She does bark more than most Airedales, but she’s been getting better in that area too. She really is a wonderful Airedale for the right person and she is really easy to take care of, IF you are firm in your expectations. She will run someone over who doesn’t keep their boundaries and isn’t consistent. She is the kind of girl that likes routine and is already doing what she needs to when you follow the routine.
Lizzie is being fostered in the Salt Lake City area.
