So much energy and so much love and kisses to give. Teddy is house broken, likes car rides and is crate trained. This little guy loves to play and play, so he needs a home where he could run around, and play hard in a secure environment. Teddy loves other dogs and would enjoy having a companion to play with.  Since Teddy is a bit dominant it might be best if his friend were more on the laid back side.

Teddy has been through some obedience training but still has a lot of puppy left in him.  The trainer he had was not the most effective, so Teddy could use some additional training.  If you are willing to put some effort in with Teddy, you will be rewarded with a loyal, loving companion for years to come.


Buddy  (18-004-MI)
       Adoption Pending


Weight: 77 pounds


State: Michigan


Contact: Mark Howitz - or


Buddy is a seven year old, who through no fault of his own, is looking for his retirement home.  He had his left knee repaired on February 20 and the recovery process is well under way. He is up to 20 minute walks and off-leash, supervised yard time. He has limited restrictions, no jumping, running, or getting crazy. He honestly is pretty calm and has self regulated his activity level. He has allergies that are well managed with one pill daily. 


He is a big teddy bear who has lost a little weight since coming into foster (now at 77 pounds). The doctor would like him to lose a bit more (70-75 pounds ideally). Buddy loves his couch, belly rubs, ear scratches, and giving big Buddy sized kisses. He loves food and will counter surf if given the chance. He is a vocal boy who will talk to you and let you know what he's thinking. Buddy is very well mannered on walks and does well in the car. 


This big guy doesn't like to share his people, so he should be an only dog. No cats or other small animals.  Because of his size, older children are probably best.


Buddy won't win any races, but this sweet boy has a lot of love left to give. The perfect home for Buddy would have an above ground fence, someone who is home most of the day, no other dogs, and Airedale experience. If this sounds like the perfect dog for you, please consider opening your heart and home and call Mark right away.

Della is big, beautiful laid back girl that loves to smile. She would just as soon sit or stand on her people given the chance. She also likes to pose for pictures and loves treats.

Della’s coat is reddish and wiry. She’s a loving sweetheart that gets along ok with most other large dogs. She doesn’t like cats. She is house trained, good on leash but will still need some work, will sit and stay on command. She is  awesome in a car. 

Della is healthy, up to date on all vaccines, spayed and is microchipped. She will need to be in an experienced home with no small animals. A fenced yard is a necessity. 

Interested in Della?  PLEASE complete an online application or contact Brad for more details. 



Age: 2-3 years 

Weight: 79 pounds

State: Arkansas

Dinah is a big, beautiful girl with an extra curly coat. She’s a real love with her people. 

Dinah is house trained, good on leash but will still need some work, will sit and stay on command. She is  awesome in a car. 

Dinah displays dominant behavior with other female dogs but gets along with larger males. She also has a bit of a prey drive, especially with cats. She will need continued training,  socialization and lots of love to overcome her past.  

She is healthy, up to date on all vaccines, spayed and microchipped. 

Dinah will need to be in an experienced home with no small animals and no female dogs. A fenced yard is a necessity. A home without young children would be best. Continued training and socialization are imperative.

Hi my is Duke.  I am a 17 month old puppy who is  full of Airedale antics and fun.  It took me about a week to adjust to my foster family but my foster mom says I am doing great and will make an awesome addition to some lucky family.  I love, love, love  my foster friend Morgan even though she is 7 years old .  My foster family has a very big fenced in yard and I love to stretch my legs and run as fast as I can.  Morgan has taught me how to chase squirrels, birds, groundhogs, and how to  dig big holes to try to catch moles.  So far, neither of us has had any luck catching one single mole but if you look at our yard you would see its not from lack of trying.   I know basic commands, love car rides, and giving lots of puppy kisses.  I don’t do well with other male dogs but love laid back females. No cats or other small animals.  My foster mom says I’m a very sweet boy so before I get too attached here I will my new family please come and get me.
Duke was surrendered because his former owners had a baby and could not find time for a young, high energy dog. Duke has been obedience trained, but will still jump up briefly to greet visitors. He will sit after you tell him to. Sometimes he will countersurf. He walks very well on a leash if you hold his leash like he was taught in obedience which is to use a leash high on his neck and hold leash tight. He is not a picky eater and his favorite treats are peanut butter and knuckle bones. His favorite toy is a stuffed lion that he's had since he was a small puppy. He is trained to an invisible fence, and will not jump a regular fence. He will sometimes counter surf, and chew on shoes if you let them lay around. He is house trained and crate trained, but his former owner did not need to crate him.
