Age: 19 months (July 2012)
Weight: 47 lbs.
Personality: Kylie loves to play with the other Airedales in her foster home, and loves to steal her foster Airedale brother’s frisbee. She is very playful and happy and sweet and affectionate. She loves to cuddle in her foster mom’s lap when they watch TV in the evening. Although she is house trained, she sometimes forgets to pee outside because she is busy playing and has had a couple of accidents. This is getting better as she settles in and learns the routine.
Kylie does tend to jump on people and that needs work. She is exuberant and very much a puppy still. She walks on a leash fine and is crate trained. She is in an xpen when the family is not home. She will chew on furniture and chew up paper if not watched. She is, after all, a puppy. She is a counter surfer (will steal a banana in a heartbeat. . eats them whole too!).
Dogs, Cats and Kids: Kylie has always lived with another dog and will be happiest living with another playful dog about her same size. It is unknown how Kylie would react to a cat. She has been around children and loves to wash faces .. she is a kissing fool. She is very exuberant and jumps and would do best in a family with older children.
Medical: Kylie is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and tested negative for heartworm.
History: Kylie was released to rescue because her very busy family did not realize how much training, exercise and attention an Airedale puppy requires.
