I’ve been owned by Airedale since the first one entered my life in the summer of 1988.  Bajun Caribee, was a sweet, loving, friendly, and silly Airedale.  Little did I know at the time it would lead to an over 30-year love affair with the breed.  Many (14 as of this writing) have shared my life, some from breeders but most from the rescue. I first was introduced to Airedale Rescue in late 2003.  I was looking for a new member of my family and completed the application and home visit then decided a third “big” dog might be too much in my little house.   Instead, I found a little terrier mix who spent almost 17 years ruling the “king of terriers”.  

I would help ARG with transports as I could and if a home visit was needed nearby I would do that for ARG.  In late 2019 I was asked to help with applicant reviews and took on some additional duties in the background.  I love sharing the joys and frustrations of this breed. Today, my husband Rick and I share our home and hearts with 4 Airedales all ARG Alumni; 2 seniors Angus and Maggie and 2 youngsters Desmond and Elliott.
