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.

Scout is a large boy who is in the process of losing weight while he is undergoing training in Michigan. He is neutered and up to date on all his shots. Scout loves to go for walks and enjoys car rides. He is very strong so he needs an attentive hand while on his walks. He is dog aggressive so he must have a furever home as an only dog. He is great with humans and enjoys all the attention. He is not food aggressive with people but is when other dogs are present. He is so strong and energetic that he should probably not be around young children. Not because of aggression, just doesn’t know his own strength. Scout is housebroken and is a big barker so apartment living is not in his future. He has a typical, big Airedale prey drive so no cats or small varmints.

Scout will need a home with a fenced yard, humans that are home most of the time, Airedale experienced owners and must be an only dog. He has basically been ignored most of his life so patience and more training are a must.

If you think Scout is a dog you can love, contact Mark.
