Monty, 2.5 yo Male, ADOPTED JUNE 2017

Meet marvelous Monty, a 2.5 year old boy who loves everybody – men, women, kids, other dogs, even (sort of) cats. Aside from being a regular, crazy, energetic Aire-boy, Monty has an under-bite. (Looks like he’s smiling all the time!) It doesn’t keep him from eating or drinking (though he does slosh a lot of water), but it can interfere with his breathing in certain climates and his mom and dad are moving to an area where it would be a problem for him. That’s why we have him.

Monty has some typical terrier skin issues, but with a change in diet and perhaps some supplements, he should be fine.

Monty loves to be with his people and to cuddle. He loves to play but that play time is limited by his hip issues. ARG will consult with a vet about how best to address these issues.

If you’re looking for a great buddy to walk or hike with, play fetch in the backyard, and cuddle with you and your kids on the couch, Monty might be just the youngster for you. He’s got a long life ahead of him. He might just be your heart-dog.

  1. Hi! Would like a few more details about Monty. I have a ver active 8 year old female ‘dale, 42 lbs. She loves playing with other dogs and I’d like to know if you think this would be too much for Monty? What hip issue does he have? Is he crate trained and what does he weigh?

    1. Hello, Lynn. We have an adopting pending for Monty. If you are in our region (NC, SC, TN, GA, or AL), please fill out an application under Adopt on this site. That is the first step to be considered to adopt from us. We have approved applicants awaiting the right Airedale for their family. Thank you for your interest in Monty and rescued Airedales.

      1. Ok this may be a long shot but I am a groomer in Charlotte NC and I love grooming the breed. Is there any rescues near me I can contact to groom the terrier breed for them?

        1. Hi, Jennifer. We have many Airedale families in the Charlotte area who might be interested. You can post on our FB page, accessible on this site. Thank you for contacting us.

    1. Lynn, could it have been under another name or through another Airedale rescue organization? I don’t find Lynn Murray in our database. We keep applications on file for several years before we purge them if inactive. Jackie

  2. I can’t believe we’re even looking for another family dog due to we just lost our sweet “Bodie” our old English sheep dog on Monday. We had him for 12 years and he was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer a couple months ago. Our heart is broken and miss him dearly. We have never owned a Airedale terrier but they seem to be a lot like an OES. We got “Bodie” as a puppy and we have never adopted before. We live in a rural area with 20 plus areas to play on with a creek. I am concerned with his hip, can’t handle a lot of bad health issues right now due to what we have just went through. He will be loved!
    We do live in North Carolina near Winston Salem.

    1. Hello, Kristie. Thank you for contacting us. I am so sorry to hear that you lost your sweet Bodie just recently. As you read, Monty is in foster care and we hope that he will stay with this family forever. Foster parents always get the first choice of adoption, of course. If you are interested in adopting an Airedale Terrier, please fill out an application on this site and one of our volunteers will contact you for a telephone interview. After that, we will have a volunteer contact you for a home visit. If you are approved to adopt, we will consider you for any Airedale we get in that would fit your particular situation. It is not a matter of first-come, first-served. It is a matter of matching the Airedale to the right home. Again, thank you for contacting us. Jackie Cash.
