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.

Jaxson came to rescue because his owner no longer had room for him due to a recent marriage. Definitely not Jaxson's fault.

He loves to play fetch and go on walks. Jaxson has played well at his daycare kennel with other medium and same sized dogs.

Jaxson is neutered and fully vetted. He is also house trained and crate trained.

He has lived with and gotten along well with other dogs in his home. We feel it is best if he is not placed in a home with small dogs. He will soon be tested with cats and we'll update this as soon as we know.

My name is Lucy and I was given up due to my family  splitting up. Humans are so complicated and my life has been turned upside-down.  I was much loved, lived with another big male dog, and am house trained. I have not been around cats. I am smart and energetic and love to play - you know that about young Airedales, right?!!   I’m always happy to see you and love to be petted.  I really need a family who will invest in me and commit to a dog training class so we can adapt to our new lives together.

I would love to have a similar sized male fur-sibling for companionship or I would be happy to be your one and only!  Love and security are top priorities.

A family who is an experienced with Airedales, retired, or works from home with a fenced yard would be the perfect home for me.

It is very hot here in Arkansas, and pictures were taken outside - so HOT Airedales. 😊

I am ready to fill your home with smiles and laughs.  Are you my forever home?

If you are an approved home to adopt and meet these requirements, please contact my foster mom, Donna Daniels. Contact info is above
