Bonnie in NM – PENDING

UPDATE:  Assuming all medical and behavioral evaluations check out, we have a home for Bonnie!

Bonnie is an absolutely delightful dog who was a companion to a gentleman who died. She was a house dog and constant companion. She has nice manners, knows her name and even comes when you call her despite being an Airedale. We started on her grooming today and even though she was a little frightened she stood beautifully. She has the typical Airedale energy, is curious and likes to play. She is reported to be between 8- 9 yrs and appears in good health but we will be completing her vet work in a few days. We consider her medium sized and are estimating her weight around 60#. She is currently living with 2 Airedales and they seem to be doing well together. Please consider adopting Bonnie you will just love her sweet nature.  Bonnie is being fostered in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area.

Teddy in Utah

Teddy is a four to five year old, neutered, male Airedale that has an awesome personality and great ears to go with it. He likes other dogs both big and small as long as they don’t try to be the boss of him. He’s been to cage-free doggie day care and did well with most of the dogs. Teddy loves being with his people and has been around children and adults of all ages. Teddy is well behaved, walks nicely on a leash, and loves to cuddle in bed and have belly rubs. He knows some basic commands and is pretty eager to please. He loves going for car rides and on walks. Once he gets to know you, the clown in Teddy comes out and he’s a joy to have around. He is a gentle and loving boy.

Teddy would do best in a home where someone is home all of the time or can take him with them. He does not do well left alone because he has pretty severe separation anxiety, and this cannot be solved by putting him in a crate or with medication. He will destroy the crate (wire or plastic) and will really hurt himself in the process. He also has some issues with men and will need time and patience for him to trust them. It’s for these reasons that Teddy is a special needs boy. Teddy is being fostered in Salt Lake City, UT.

Lizzie in Utah -ADOPTED

Lizzie

UPDATE.  LIZZIE HAS BEEN ADOPTED!

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.

Chip in New Mexico – Adopted

Chip

Chip

ADOPTED

​Chip is a 2 yr old male that came to us as an owner surrender to the shelter.  He is neutered and very healthy and a typical 2 yr old adolescent. He has been started on basic training and house training but will need to be in a home where training will be continued.  He learns quickly and his attention span is good for his age. He is currently living with 3 female Airedales and would do best with a non dominant playmate his ​size.

He is very people focused and likes being with his people but can also entertain himself chasing squirrels and playing with another dog. But left alone for long hours he will get “creative.” Typical of a youngster he is fond of shoes and  gloves but given a kong he will rest quietly after exercise.  Chip is medium size at approximately 75#
Chip is being fostered in the Albuquerque area.

Noah of NM (Adopted)

Meet Noah (ADOPTED). He was discovered by one of our volunteers who found him listed on a local yard sale website. The listing described him as “a very energetic, very sweet one year old Airedale who loves everyone and has never met a stranger. He loves running, playing in the water, hikes and his toys. He would do best in a home where he has another dog to play with. We have given him a loving home but with a new baby in the house we are unable to give him the attention he needs.”

Our volunteer was able to bring Noah into rescue and brought him to Las Cruces where he was met by a second volunteer who brought him the rest of the way to Silver City. We updated his vaccinations and got him bathed and groomed and ready for his new forever home. He was adopted by the volunteer who helped transport him –it was love at first sight for the entire family and Noah has doggie sisters to play with and humans to give him lots of love and attention.

Brandy of New Mexico – Adopted

Beautiful Brandy was a stray at a shelter in southern New Mexico and no one ever came to claim her. After getting her spayed and over a case of kennel cough and evaluated by a foster family, she was placed with one of our approved applicants who had been waiting a long time for a female that would be a good match for their current female Airedale. They are a perfect match.

Mae of New Mexico – Adopted

Mae came from an elderly couple that found her energy overwhelming.

Her new family keeps her well exercised.

Here is a photo of our girl on our deck with a rainbow in the background. The one with her on her back, is one of her favorite poses; she sometimes sleeps for a while like that. Shows how uptight she is, no?

Polly in Arizona – ADOPTED

PollyADOPTED!

Polly and her new brother playing Bitey Face

***
Polly is a five year old, 58 lb., spayed, healthy and energetic girl.   She was too much for her elderly owners, who sadly decided she needed a chance at a better life.  She is very friendly, affectionate and loves to be loved.  She wants to be close to her humans wherever they are, inside or out, but is okay on her own as long as she has had lots of exercise.  She would probably be fine with kids, except that she still jumps and mouths at your hands a little when she is excited in anticipation of a walk or dinner. She is getting much better, but no little kids or elderly in the home until she has had some training.Polly

Polly enjoys hunting lizards with her foster family’s Airedales and would not be safe with cats, birds, or other small rapidly moving critters.
She loves going for walks, car rides and trips to the dog park.  Polly
Polly has a beautiful thick coat and luxurious furnishings, which unfortunately had to be shaved off because of the mats.

Polly is currently being fostered in Tucson, Arizona.

If you have an application in with Southwest Airedale Terrier Rescue, please let us know that you are interested in Polly. For all others, please complete an application (link above).  An application with vet references and a home visit are required.
