Carrie, 1-1/2-y-o F/S, ADOPTED JUNE 2019

We’d like to introduce you Carrie, a 1-1/2-year-old Aire-girl. She is looking for a home where she will get lots of personal attention and will have the company of another dog about her size – 55 pounds. She hasn’t had the socialization with people that she should have but is accustomed to living with other dogs and having her person near her all day. She has been living on a farm and spends a lot of time outside, but she loves to be inside with her person.
Her foster mom says Carrie loves to run and play especially in the mornings, and thinks it’s a really fun game to run after a Frisbee, grab it, and NOT bring it back to you. (That’s so Airedale!) She instead wants to chew on it. (She needs some strong chew toys!) With a little work, you can teach her to always bring it back so she can chase it again. Treats will undoubtedly help.
Although Carrie is a bit shy and reticent at first, she definitely wants to bond with her person and loves to nuzzle your hand and be petted and get ear rubs; she’s a real cuddle-bug. She will walk on leash reluctantly, but with patience and practice, she will learn that it’s fun and interesting. On the farm, when she was bored, she would try to dig out and run away, so she needs a very secure fence and cannot be left unattended even in a fenced yard. She’s ok with grooming and fine in the car.
She has never been around children, but older ones would probably be okay, as long as they know not to startle her. She shouldn’t be around cats or small fluffy dogs.
Is your home the one for Carrie?

    1. Hi, Mackenzie. Thank you for your message. Please fill out an application on this site under “Adopt” to be considered for adopting an Airedale. Once we receive your application, one of our volunteers will contact you for an interview to understand more about your lifestyle and expectations for an Airedale. Then we will have a volunteer who lives near you make an appointment with you for a home visit to meet everyone who lives in your home, including any animals. We do not arrange meet-ups until all of these steps have been completed. When you have been approved, we will match you to an Airedale that would work in your home. Thank you.

  1. We just saw Carrie. Would love to meet her. We will fill out an application in morning. My husband loves airdales….well we are dog lovers. Thanks for any consideration. We will be in touch.

    1. Good morning, Mel. Thanks for the message. We welcome your application. As you can imagine, Carrie being so young has generated a lot of interest and several people have applied. Once we receive an application, we then conduct a telephone interview and follow that with a home visit by one of our volunteers. Once we all are satisfied that the family and home are right for an Airedale, we will determine which Airedale we have would best fit the family. We look forward to receiving your application.
