Adopted – Harry

Harry came in with his Lakeland sister after his owner passed away.  His daughter tried to keep Harry and Baby together but living in an apartment and used to a 5 acre fenced in yard, the dogs were not happy and she sadly surrendered.   Harry’s breath was very bad and as suspected, he needed quite…

Adopted – Royce

Royce was well loved and cared for by his family but a new baby had left Royce with not enough time to channel the high energy of a 3 year old Airedale.  Not having a fenced yard left Royce wanting more walks than mom could manage with an infant.  His family didn’t want him to…

Adopted – Harley

Harley lived most of his days and nights outdoors in a run, therefore his socialization is not what it should be.  He was exposed to children but we do think he lived outdoors since he’s not quite housebroken at 6 years old.  He has a nice temperament and does know some commands but needs work…

Happy Tails – Gifford

In May 2021, on a bright spring day in rural Pennsylvania, a young woman visited a family friend and noticed an Airedale tethered to a doghouse. She asked about the dog and was told that “Sam” was purchased a few years earlier to accompany the friend on his road-trips as a trucker, but bringing Sam…

Adopted – Billy

Billy came from a backyard in Louisiana, neglected after his dad passed away. He is blind from cataracts and had multiple growths which have been removed and were benign. He has significant hair loss which will most likely not grow back, probably due to flea dermatitis. Billy is now up to date on shots, on…

Happy Tails – Odin & Addie

Odin and Addie were surrendered together – a pair of 6-year-old littermates. Their former owners had a hard time keeping them in the fenced yard. There seemed to be a spot where the fence was off the ground and they kept getting out of that area. They were very bonded to each other, particularly the…

Happy Tails – Valentine

Valentine’s story highlights the power of patience and when needed, medical intervention. Val came into rescue at 8 years old. He was a very stressed and anxious dog, and very overweight at 90+ lbs. His surrendering family hadn’t focused on training him, so he wasn’t doing well in that department, either. He was very dominant…

Happy Tails – Duke

Duke and his birth mother lost their home due to a natural disaster and the family unfortunately had to move to an apartment.  A nice family took in Duke and his ma but when they got there, oh my goodness!  There were already 4 Airedales living there!  Ma settled in nicely with the pack but…

Happy Tails – Amber

In Fall 2015, ARADV received a call from the local SPCA that they had a senior female Airedale. They didn’t have much history except that she was having accidents in the house and didn’t get along with their other dog. The volunteer brought out a small Airedale with light red fur and said her name…

Happy Tails – Paris

PARIS – ADOPTING A SENIOR FOR THE FIRST TIME Last year we were lucky enough to adopt Paris (then Pal).  Deb Ciancarelli brought Paris to us on December 6, 2014, which was Paris’s 9th birthday.  None of us ever looked back.  Our then-6 year old male, Jeter, has been in love since the first week. …
