Adopt an Adorable Airedale Terrier

Adoption Process

Please read about the Adoption Process before clicking on the "Adoption Application" button at the bottom of this page. Thank you.

Pet ownership is a serious commitment that the entire household needs to consider and agree to before the animal is adopted. We want to ensure that each adoptive household is aware of and willing and able to accept the physical and financial responsibilities of pet ownership. Not everyone who desires to own a pet is ready to properly care for one. The Adoption Application and approval process will assist both you and us in determining if your household is prepared to assume the role of a responsible caretaker for a rescued animal. Thank you for filling it out!

Once you submit the Adoption Application, we will call your reference and a volunteer will call you for a telephone interview. If there are no problems that arise from the telephone interview, we will have a volunteer do a home visit with you. They will bring an Airedale with them (one of their own usually).

By submitting this Application, you agree that we can proceed with these next two steps in the Adoption Application process. In addition, by submitting this Application, you agree that Starting Over Airedale Rescue, Inc. may call the reference that you have provided and that we may call you for a telephone interview. You understand that proceeding with this application does not guarantee that SOAR will approve you for adopting one of our dogs. You also understand that if you are approved, you may have to wait until a dog enters rescue that SOAR believes is a good match for you and your family. Once a match is made, you understand that you will be asked to make a suggested adoption donation of $300 to $450. If the placement does not work out, you will be required to return the dog to SOAR.

Once you have been approved, please be sure to work closely with your state coordinator about any dog you might be interested in. If the dog is out-of-state, we will need to coordinate an adoption with that state coordinator.

Willow is a 2 year old female that was found as a stray.  She was brought into the SOAR family and after vetting was found to be heart worm positive .  She went through the painful heart worm shot treatment and has returned to health with all the Airedale shenanigans that is normal for a youngster.  Willow is a solid girl at 65 pounds who is athletic, smart, and loving.  She needs an active home that may include daily runs, walks, and doggie park play. She do well with a young male or non-alpha female dog of similar size who likes to play.  If you will throw a ball, she will wear you out with retrieving a ball - she loves it!

As with all good and smart Airedales, she needs training and structure.  She is a couch and bed potato and loves to snuggle. She has been known to help herself to any items that are at head level, such as books, magazines, eye glasses, etc. She will return them but not without modification!  😊  Mischievous is her middle name.  Remember a tired dog is a good dog. She would be a bit rambunctious for small children but it is that Airedale enthusiasm and excitement.  Are you the right ones for such a special girl to bring laughs and tears and joy into your home.  Willow is ready for your pickup in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Looking for approved homes so fill out an application and reach out to your state coordinators!
