Special Needs Boy in Ontario Needs a Home


I am a 4 yr old neutered boy looking for a very special family.  I have recently been diagnosed with Diabetes and require insulin shots twice a day.  Aside from the diabetes I am a very happy and active guy who is up to date on all my shots.  I like my crate, walk well on a leash and with a bit of work I even come when I am called!  Who wouldn’t love me???  Oh you need to know that I love when company comes to visit and like most Airedales I have a very enthusiastic hello.  With my adoption you also get free pest removal services.  I promise to do my best to rid your yard of squirrels and varmints!  If you have a fenced yard, can help me look after my health needs and will love life with a happy energetic Aireboy, please fill in an adoption application and contact Barbara Durance at bpdurance@rogers.com 

Tail wags and Aire kisses,



Sixteen-month-old Sarah came into Ontario rescue on April 25/10. She had been bathed, but was horribly matted because she had never been groomed. It was believed that she had allergies and she had open sores on different parts of her body. She was loved but her family were moving and also expecting a new baby. They felt that they were not giving her the time she deserved.

Sarah is a lively girl that will sit, shake a paw and wait for a release command for her meals. She’s a sweetheart, needing some one that could give her the exercise and leadership that she’s been lacking. Because Sarah is a busy girl, without this leadership and exercise, she could easily become a nuisance.

Sarah is now living in a great home where she is being walked and played with. She has a new Mom and Dad and a Wheaton Terrier brother who has attended many obedience classes. Her skin issues are being addressed and she is starting to feel comfortable and happy with her forever family.

Holly Goes to Her New Home

On April 24/10, Holly took a car ride to meet her new family in Brantford. Due to a divorce and a move to smaller living quarters, her original family had to say goodbye after six years to a wonderful affectionate Airedale.

Holly is a lady with impeccable manners, a lovely disposition and a dainty “aire”. She arrived, ready to meet her future family, wearing a bright new red collar and lead, the better to show off her wonderful grooming . When she was introduced to the couple who had offered her a home, her tail went up and she was happy to discover she would have a brother, a younger Airedale boy who was excited to have an Airedale sister to play with.

Holly’s forever home is wondering why they waited so long to add another Airedale to their family!

Ozzy In Ontario Has a New Home!

Due to a move to a smaller residence and not being able to properly exercise him, Ozzy’s owner is having to surrender him. Ozzy needs an active family that will walk or jog with him on a daily bases. He loves these activities and looks forward to them.  Although not destructive he gets bored when not exercised and left to his on devices. A fenced in back yard to call his own is a must.  Ozzy is an  affectionate dog with gentlemanly manners. He does not mark in the house or beg at the table. He sleeps on his bed at night. He is well trained and socialized with other dogs due to his attendance at Doggy Day Care. Like many of our Airedale kids Ozzy does cower or yelp if he fears something. He needs time to feel secure in his surroundings. He does enjoy being petted and fussed over but  he does not enjoy having his tummy rubbed unless he asks for the attention. He will get up and walk away. On the other hand he loves his bath and being groomed.
Ozzy is a healthy, 7 year old, neutered Male who needs a family to love and adore him and give him the activity he needs. He needs a home without young children.
If you are  in Ontario and  looking for a good looking mid sized Airedale gentleman  to love and enjoy an active life with,  please fill in an application and contact Barbara Durance  at bpdurance@rogers.com
