Here are some of the wonderful Airedales we have found loving homes for over the past few years.
Each time we find a new home then we will attach a picture of them for you to see (subject to permission).
If anyone has opened their hearts and homes and adopted an Airedale and would like a picture included in our gallery, then please email your picture and some text to: email@example.com and we will be pleased to include your beloved Airedale in our gallery.
This youngster was more than a handful for his first time Airedale owners.
He is now living with a couple who have experienced owning strong willed Airedales before.
He is having a lot of daily consistent training and is slowly improving.
Quite a challenge for his new owners but given time he is turning out to be a very well behaved boy.
We have slowly taken Daisy into our family but it was almost instant trust with Daisy to us.
Her character is now coming out. She does not like her back feet touched but has gradually come to accept it, she moans and groans but puts up with me washing her paws.She is actually hilarious in that she makes a low rumbling noise, not a growl, but a noise of displeasure and usually finishes off with a high pitch bark which always makes me jump.
When she finally escapes she rushes back to give very big kisses and there is no escape!!
Daisy is a kind and gentle soul, exceptionally affectionate and clownish.What I would call a true Airedale.
In four weeks Henry has settled in very well.
He’s learnt to jump in the car, sits and waits for his food and to have his lead put on.He enjoys his walks and loves his bed.
Being a youngster he likes a game of mouthy rough and tumble but will stop when asked eventually. He loved running around in the snow and we are already planning our holidays with him.
Henry has put the smiles back on our faces.
Arthur is now living “the life” in the Midlands.
His new owners have a large family with many adult children coming and going.Arthur just loves all the activity!!

Best Wishes, Lottie, in your new life.
Hazel is living the life by the sea in Cornwall.
This is a quote out of her diary:”Today in my garden I found a baby bird who lives in one of my trees.Because we have so many cats that surround us I am constantly on patrol.I wagged my tail and protected the little bird until it’s Mother came and showed her the way home.”
My Mum and Dad are really proud of me.
Good luck girlie in your new life.
Agatha has started a new chapter in her life. She has not just moved into one home but two!!
She is based in the home counties but gets very excited when the car is being packed with her bed,toys etc as she then knows they are heading for her other home in the Lake District where she enjoys the long country walks.
Here she is happily playing in one of her gardens.
Good luck girlie in your new life.
Youngster Hamish is settling in really well to his new home.
His new owners say: “He is learning the command drop and leave, so far less chewing, his mouthing is still work in progress but is greatly improved.
He is now going to a doggy class to socialise with other dogs as living in the country as living in the country he doesn’t meet too many other dogs when we are out walking.
Hamish is such an intelligent boy we have decided to work towards his K.C. bronze award”.
Hello! My name is Billy. My new home is in West Cornwall and since I arrived I have been enjoying getting to know everyone in the village.I really love meeting and greeting people and I am extremely popular with our neighbours.Everyone tells me just how handsome I am!!
I am learning to come back when I am called (I’m getting much better at this) and to be friendly to other dogs who I meet when on the lead. My new family describe this as “work in progress”.
These are a few of my favourite things: chasing tennis balls in the garden, eating sardines in tomato sauce for tea, having cuddles and walking in the countryside and on the beach.
Mungo settled into his new Gloucestershire home within a few days.
His new owners say “ He loves having a field to call his very own. We are a very dog friendly village and there is never a time when he doesn’t have a new friend or two around for a play date”
We wish Mungo all the best for a long and happy life in his new home.
After change of work styles to much longer hours, Seamus’s owners made the hard decision to find him a new home as he was ‘home alone’ for far too long.
He made a very long journey down to Avon & Somerset. Seamus then left immediately for a booked holiday in Dorset.
The picture of Seamus shows him striding out heading for the beach on his first holidays.

Youngster Florence was not as good at recall as her first time Airedale owner expected her to be even after a lot of training.

Junior Murphy has just started a new chapter in his life.
Due to change of work styles Murphy’s owners just could not give him the time and training required for a young dog.
Murphy is now living the rural life in Shropshire and as you can see from his picture he has soon made himself at home.
Due to family change of circumstances Taylor found herself looking for a new and more active home.

Dixie has moved to the country and she is loving it !!
She is enjoying the company of an Airedale boy, bossing him about a bit so at the moment he is keeping out of her way.

After losing their eleven year old Airedale boy a few months ago Bertie’s new owners thought they would like to take a look at rescuing an Airedale before they committed to buying a puppy.

Best wishes for Bertie now starting a new life.
A few words from William’s new owner:-
“ He is a fantastic dog and although he has only been with us for a month he has settled in very quickly despite everything so new and different for him.
He has come from his solitary life to live in our busy family home with lots of comings and goings and has coped very well.
He is very affectionate and playful and a joy to have around.
We are very grateful to Airedale Rescue for rehoming William to us. Thank you Lynda”.

Her new owner says “ thank you Lynda so much for allowing us to adopt her”
Here are a few words from George’s new owner.
George AKA is a huge teddybear of a boydale and for me it really was love at first sight.He took a couple of nights to settle in so a homeopathic remedy was given to him on night three and we have never looked back since.He is a true clown,a tea leaf through and through … “if you cruise … you will lose” is his mantra. He likes burying things in our gravel and often appears bounding happily with a chew he has rediscovered.
In the garden and out and about George comes back only when he is ready,if he feels like it and the day doesn’t have a “y” in it,he just looks at me and says “ chase me!!”. George is my seventh Airedale so I simply reply;”bye bye!!” He walks brilliantly on the lead and is friendly with other dogs he meets on our local beaches.
In our nearby forest he is a bold explorer and such a good walking buddy always keeping his eye out for birds and deer to chase. However he often feels somewhat bemused that I don’t keep up with him. At home he is a great companion and will sit patiently without a hint of a scrounge in a tearooms;he really is my perfect man, my Georgie Best !!
After a property downsize and a greatly reduced outside area to run around in Jas became at odds with the rescue dog she shared her life with. It was with a heavy heart that her owner came to the decision to find Jas a new home.

Here she is enjoying her very own armchair.

Sapphire is another youngster who was getting far too big and strong for her owners who had not had a puppy for some years.
Sapphire has gone to live in the Shropshire countryside where she has a large garden to race around in. In addition her new owners like nothing better than to take Sapphire on lots of country walks which are on their doorstep.
Airedale Rescue wish Sapphire and her new owners many happy years of fun together.
Puppy Jasper was just too boisterous and mouthy for first time Airedalers to cope with.

He will soon be getting him own passport as his owners intend to take him aboard with them for the Summer just as they did with their previous boy.

Max is such a good boy, loving and friendly with all.It only took one phone call and Max’s new home was waiting for him.
Max is the fifth Airedale that his new owners have owned and they are very pleased to welcome him into their home.
This youngster was just too much of a boisterous puppy for a family with two young children.
Two weeks ago Gertie went to live in the beautiful Cotswolds with another re homer of ours called Gelert.
These two have instantly become the best of friends and chase and play bitey face all day long.
Airedale Rescue wish them both and their family many happy years ahead.
Tess lived on the South coast near to the sea but because of her owners health issues it was thought that Tess would be better off with a couple who could walk her everyday and have the space for her to run free; something which she loved doing on the beach.

So Tess has moved from a South coast beach to a West country beach and is in her element.

‘Sweet gentle natured Indie has come to live with us in Devon after her previous owner died. We have never been Airedale owners before but are now totally smitten !!
She is very affectionate, loves playing “fetch”, she makes us laugh and loves running around the fields with her new doggy friends.

Right form the start they hit it off at a running speed !!

Gelert has moved to the Cotswolds into a family life. His new owners are new to our beloved breed but are very willing and able to learn all about the needs and patience of a boisterous young Airedale.
They are looking forward to enrolling him into an agility club; something I think he will enjoy and excel at.
They already know the comfort an Airedale likes – look at his new bed!!

What a friendly dog – a bit mouthy and very excitable at seeing someone new. He is a strong dog but through lack of exercise his back muscles need building up.
Hank has now been in his new home for two weeks and he and his new owner are getting on great.
His owner has said ” Every day Hank surprises me, he is such fun. I ran a bath for him and he jumped in and even let me clip his toe nails – what a boy !! He is a strong dog and I feel he will soon grow into the role of my best friend and protector”
“Thank you Lynda for letting me adopt Hank. I am so pleased to have an “A” man back in my life …..”
Teddy – the tedstar plus lots of other names.
Teddy is a hunter !!
A few words from his new owner; ” We have a fox which comes through our garden every night and his scent drives Ted mad !!
He loves being in the garden and loves just coming in now and again to check we are still here.
If he is in the house and the windows are open he runs outside with a purpose. I love it when he runs with a purpose – his tail goes up,so does his head it’s almost as if he’s bouncing on air.
He is a lovely dog Lynda and he makes us laugh everyday he’s really loving and always coming up to us for a fuss; everybody loves him and he loves everybody.
Thank you for bringing him into our lives. Life would be very dull without our Teddy “.
Barney went to his new home some months ago to live with a first time Airedale owner; a lady who had lots of previous dog experience but never had an “A” before. She had always dreamed of owning one of our breed.
Initially there were a few learning curves both for Barney and his new owner. As we all know Airedales do have some idiosyncratic ways.
Barney and his owner have moved over to the Isle of Wight and is having an absolutely fantastic time enjoying life to the full and swimming everyday.
In fact he has become a real old salty sea dog !!
Frankilin moved into his coastal home some months ago.
A quote from his new owner;
“After living his former life with other dogs, I did wonder how he would cope being just with me. He loves it, loves all the one to one attention and loves being the man in my life.
Here he is looking out of my bedroom window in search of seagulls or cats – he hates both equally !!
He is well known in all the coffee shops around the harbour. I wouldn’t want to be without him.
Thank you Lynda for bringing us together ”
Yogi moved into his new home a few months ago and went to live with a wonderful couple and their Min. Schnauzer Dessie.
Whenever the weather looks good they all take off in their camper van to somewhere scenic in the UK.
What a lucky boy you are Yogi !!!
Miley and Lola
It’s now a week since Miley and Lola, both three years old, went to live in the Peak District of the U.K.
To say they have made themselves at home is an understatement !!
We are so pleased that we managed to keep these two girlies together.
Looking at their beautiful picture who wouldn’t want them both in any of our lives.
Senior Rex is now in a wonderful new home.
Unfortunately 10 year old Rex’s elderly owner could no longer look after him.He was taken to a lovely boarding kennels where they had looked after him in the past.
Rex is now settled with his new owners and living with Maddy a 10 year old Cocker Spaniel who thinks he is awesome !!!
Oscar was just 18 months old when he was rehomed. His new owner says “he had not been set many ground rules or met many other dogs”
He now goes to training every week and joins in all the activities – some would say he is the clown of the class – he is a wonderful chap and everyone loves him.
His new owners recently held an open garden weekend and Oscar was in his element meeting and greeting the visitors whilst sitting on his “Throne”.
Mr Harold is yet another Airedale that has gone to live by the coast.
First reports are that he is settling in well.
He is now enjoing the vast expanse of the beach. He has found lots of treasure to play with mainly seaweed and driftwood.!!!
A typical playful Airedale …
When we rehomed Muddles he was a matted woolley bear. He had had little attention for a considerable length of time as you can see.
The first task his new owners had to undertake was to get him to the groomers.What a task the groomers had!!
When they collected him, hours later, they wondered if they had been given the same dog that they had left with the groomers earlier in the day.
Muddles has turned out to be a great chap.
Over the past few months we have come to understand his character.
He is an accomplished bin raider and thief who enjoys spiriting his ill gotten gains off to his bed for chewing or laying on !!!
He loves to grump at our daughter when she fusses him but secretly the waggy tail says it all – they love each other.
We all love him to bits, he has made our family complete.
Thank you Lynda for allowing us to adopt Muddles.
Harry on the beach ……..
Lovely Harry adores meeting all his friends on the beach; George and Charlie the Labradoodles and Rex the standard poodle are his favourite playmates.
After playtime hurtling around with his mates Harry loves to dive around in the water for pieces of chalk, once he’s broken them into bits he looks as though he’s frothing at the mouth.
It’s alway Harry’s custom that when leaving the beach he picks up the biggest piece of wood he can find so he can carry it proudly home, sometimes the wood is so long he can’t get through the gate! ……… he is such a clown ………..
Cali’s Bad Ear Day !!
Cali has been in her new home for just over a year now, her new owners say ‘every day she is a ray of sunshine with a cheeky sense of humour, we are so fortunate to have her in our lives’
Miss Bridie giving a vintage Push-Along Terrier toy her ‘evil eye’.
Maggie was in a very poor condition when Lynda rescued her. Living in a stable and just about surviving on whatever food she could find, her backbone and ribs were hardly covered and she weighed barely 15 kg. Her skin was red raw and what jacket she had was dripping in a pungent secretion.
It took months of special attention, loving care and good quality food to get her back to health, and to Lynda’s delight Maggie has the most wonderful friendly nature of any girlie she has come across.
Cassie is such a sweetie, and she was very lucky to go and live with Lilly a Labradoodle (also a rescue).
Wookiee is a young boisterous teenager. He has gone to join Thumper, a smaller terrier. They have great fun together – especially when their Wolfhound friend comes to stay!
Wookiee – with friends
How much longer do we have to wait for our walk to begin?
Coni and her litter brothers and sisters were born into rescue. Their Mother was already in whelp when she was surrendered.
Coni was adopted at 8 weeks old and is now living the idyllic country life; chasing rabbits, birds, squirrels… and just about anything else that moves!
“It’s me again… I thought you might like to see my sharp as needles puppy teeth!”
Maddie had a previous quiet life before she was surrendered. Now she is the Aire Girl about town…
She rides in an open top sports car, parades up and down the jetty at the marina, she cruises along the coast and enjoys all the attention that comes her way. She is never seen out and about without her red car harness and wears her designer red safety harness for cruising in style… whooooo!
Cruising pictures to follow…
Maddie – Cruising
Well here I am patiently waiting for Dad to cast off so we can get underway
he is slow sometimes !!!
Reenie is a senior 10 years plus. Her owner was returning to Australia and made the heart breaking decision to surrender her. The long journey and the intense heat that Australia experiences would be too much for her.
She is now living a wonderful retired life near the sea and enjoys her daily stroll along the coastal paths.
