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.

Airedales for Adoption by State Airedales for Adoption by Age

HAZEL - 24-0xx-AR


Sex: Female

Age: 8 months

Weight: 45 pounds

State: Arkansas

Contact: Kathy Short or Chris Bettis at 501-231-4300 or

Hazel is a sweet and happy Airedale puppy surrendered for having too much energy! 😂💕
Hazel is a very busy girl! She's very curious and competent. She has a lot of confidence, but needs someone to help her develop common sense. She wears her confidence and playfulness well, a typical Airedale puppy. When meeting new playmates she is very playful at first, but will read cues from other dogs and adjust her play as needed. She kennels well and will sleep all night perfectly.
Hazel is a precious handful that needs an Airedale experienced owner to work with her patiently as she grows into a great Airedale companion.
The ideal home would have humans home more often that away, a fenced in back yard, and a commitment to continued training. She loves other dogs and would do well with a dog close to her size.
Must be approved to adopt.

FINN - 24-005-OH

Sex: Male

Age: 3.5 years

Weight: 70 pounds

State: Michigan

Contact: Diane Mazaitis at or 734-558-1845

My name is Finn and I am really hoping that you are the one to give me my new forever home.  I am loving, strong, and handsome.  I will be timid at first when I come to live with you.  Just shower me with scratches and love and let me know we can be best friends.  And, did I say I was handsome?  I do like older kids, maybe ten or older, but I may be too much for smaller children.  I am housebroken, neutered, and current on all vaccinations.

There are two important things you need to know about me.  One is that I don’t want to share my space with another dog…I want to be your one and only.  This also means no dog parks for me.  Hopefully, you have a fenced yard and like to play fetch…although I may not always return whatever you throw.  The other is that if you leave food on the counter and walk away, I will assume that it is for me.

Right now, I am in a kennel.  The kennel person here is very nice to me, but I am really missing having a family of my own.  Will you be my forever family?  Please?  Did I say I was handsome?

If you are interested in me, please fill out an application.  I can’t wait to meet you!
