UPDATE! It took a while, but BB and her forever family finally found each other!! Her new family shares these updates of Life with BB.
We will begin each day with a morning hike and end each day with an evening walk .
What a perfect match with all of us – she has taken well to having basically three bosses .
BB at the Swimming Pond
We have been here over an hour of constant throw swim and catch . This after an hour hike this am! BB will go to any length to retrieve a ball — she is a great swimmer!
Thank you Southwest Airedale Terrier Rescue for bringing us this treasure of a dog!
BB (Black Beauty) is a gorgeous Airedale mix looking for an active home with the time and energy to give her the exercise she needs. This is no couch potato dog .. she loves brisk walks and hikes (checking out every rodent hole along the way). If you have a pool and a strong arm, that is the perfect way to give her exercise. She also loves the tennis ball flinger. She is then happy to sleep the day away, although she is always ready for a game of catch or another walk, if you would like. She is affectionate and loves to give you kisses. The longer she knows you, the more affectionate she gets. Anyone who will give her that trademarked Airedale Butt Scratch is welcome.

BB is more of a people-dog than a dog-dog, but she meets dogs on walks politely and at the dog park and will even engage in a little play time with friends from time to time (although she is always more interested in hunting for rodents or chasing lizards).
She needs to be the only dog in the home as she wants to be the one who receives all your attention. She has lived with cats without any problem, so it is possible an independent dog-experienced cat could share her home. She is too energetic for homes with pre-teen children, plus she will steal their toys!
BB is 7 years old and weighs 55 lbs. She is house broken and has been an indoor dog all her life. She has a big warning bark to let you know if someone is at the door. She is familiar with a dog door if you have one. She wants to be where her people are, wherever they are. She loves to have her person working in the yard so she can spend hours hunting for lizards and checking every hole for rodent activity.
She sheds minimally. As long as you keep her clipped (4 times a year) and brushed, you won’t find little black Airebunnies around the house. However, those black furnishings do pick up grass, weeds, etc.
She is up to date on her vaccinations, microchipped, spayed and recently had her teeth cleaned.
