Max is a 7 ½ year old, handsome, well-mannered boy. He is extremely obedient but still a typical Airedale who meets people on his own terms and with some reserve. This is a very, very nice boy who does not beg for food, truly loves people and gets along fine with other dogs.
Max has lived with a cat but, being a normal Airedale, will certainly chase chance-met cats as well. Since he has had no experience with children, it is recommended that he find his forever placement in an adult only home. Max is up-to-date on vaccinations and is neutered.
Max would make an excellent companion for an adult family. He would love to spend the Christmas holidays this year in his new home. Could that be yours?
Teddy is still looking for his forever home. Please consider him!
Teddy came into foster care in August and is still looking for his forever home. He is a 7 year old 52 lb aireboy who loves cuddles and people time. Here is a note from his foster family:
Teddy has been a joy to have around. He has really gotten used to living the family life and is extremely loyal. He’s gotten so comfortable with his foster parents he even jumps up on the couch and bed to stay nice and close to them. He follows his foster parents around wherever they go and almost wags his bum off with excitement when they get home from being out. He really loves his people. He also loves playing with plush toys and helping cook dinner, especially when a crumb is accidentally dropped. He’s getting more comfortable on his leash but still needs to be watched around certain dogs. He sure does know when it’s time for a walk though!
His number one desirable quality is his loyalty. If you’re looking for a forever best friend then Teddy’s your guy. He hasn’t left his foster parents side since he joined them. He always makes sure to be a part of what their doing whether it’s watching TV, mowing the lawn or spending a day at the office.
If you are Teddy’s forever family, please complete the adoption applications and contact Ontario@airecanada.com with any questions. Please note that we do not fly dogs so if you are interested you need to be located in Ontario.
Sophia has found a new home! Thank you to all who expressed interest in this lovely AireGirl.
Eight-year-old Sophia, whose name means “Wisdom”, is seeking a new home. This is a very friendly, really happy, good-natured girl who appears to like men, women, children and dogs of all sizes.
Sophia is a healthy, 68 pound, 24” tall Airedale with a soft coat. Apparently, she has learned some “wisdom” during her life since she is fully house-trained. She is not destructive in any way and is never crated when her foster mom leaves her alone. In fact, Sophia is not especially fond of crates and much prefers to nap on the dogs’ sofa in her present foster home. We note that this clever Airedale avoids the living room furniture and family beds!
Sophia has good recall and walks nicely on leash although she will pull when she wishes to greet a chance-met dog. She is extremely social with other dogs and will initiate play with the foster home’s two male Airedales as well as with visiting dogs. She knows her name and basic commands such as COME and SIT. Her ability to tolerate cats is unknown.
Because she is a little overweight, Sophia is on a slightly reduced diet. She is fed an excellent grain-free kibble along with cooked eggs, yogurt and a few supplements. Her preferred new home would continue this diet until Sophia’s weight is more controlled.
Like most Airedales, Sophia has a small quirk. Occasionally, she will reject the offer of a walk for no apparent reason. We assume that this behavior must be tied into unknown past experiences of some sort and will be overcome in time with patience and understanding.
We like Little Miss Wisdom a great deal. We think she is one of the nicest Airedales we have been asked to rehome in quite some time.
If you would like more information about Sophia who is available to adopters in southwestern BC, please contact Maureen Scott. As with all of our placements, a completed application form is necessary as well as a home visit.

An update on Betty ~ now Ellie as per her new family’s request.
We’ve named her Ellie! Ellie found a bunny in the yard this morning, wow that was neat! She loves tummy rubs and nose scratches! Ellie has decided she’s my shadow, so she has to lay down where she can see me. She really likes all the attention!
Ellie didn’t think I should go to work this morning. I made her sit, patted her, told her to stay home, and be a good girl! Then did the same pats and instructions with a hug to my 15 yr old daughter. She came up and stuck her nose between us, wagging her tail like “Hey ladies, group hug!!” Oh my, what a love. She’s so happy here, and everyone who’s met her says her new name suits her perfectly. I’m sure we’ve given Ellie the best there is. Thanks Airecanada, for all you do.Catherine and Ellie
Teddy is Betty’s brother (http://www.airecanada.com/tag/Betty)! Born July 2004, he is a handsome 52 lb boy who just turned 7. He was the dominant one of the two and while very self assured, he is not aggressive. Teddy loves nuzzling up for ear rubs and is always lying at his foster families feet. Teddy’s owner was ill and had to be moved to a hospital so Teddy landed in rescue with his sister and this is the first time he has been without her. He is taking it all in stride and warming up to the idea of having the humans all to himself. Teddy needs some basic obedience work but walks ok on a leash. Teddy will be neutered next week and will then be ready to meet his forever family. If you live in Onatario and you think Teddy might be the dog you have been waiting for, please submit an adoption application found here: http://www.airecanada.com/applicationform.html and contact Stephanie MacNeill – firstname.lastname@example.org
Little Betty is a petite Airedale who just celebrated her 7th birthday! Sadly her previous owner was ill and had to be moved to a hospital so she is looking to spend the second half of her life with a loving new family. Betty is Teddy’s sister (http://www.airecanada.com/2011/08/22/teddy-in-ontario/) and you will love Betty, she is sweet, calm, gentle and has great basic obedience. She comes, sits and walks very nicely on her leash. Betty just came into rescue and will be spayed this week so she will be ready to go to her new home right away. Betty loves to be around people and could use a little TLC to get through this tough transition. She has lost some weight and is a little scared at the moment but with a little consistency and love she will be a dream doggie. If you are interested in Betty, please complete an adoption application and contact Stephanie MacNeill – email@example.com
