Say Hello to Stache! He’s a 14 month old, typical Airedale puppy. He’s got a lot of energy and a super sweet personality. Stache is a taller Airedale but fairly lean at 65 lbs. His likes are playing and digging in the yard, being petted and loved (oh and did I mention being petted), long walks, playing with toys, and sniffing everything he comes into contact with – he knows great adventures are out there. His dislikes are tiled floors, vacuums, thunder, being alone, and sharing his food or toys. He is dreaming of an outdoorsy and active family where he can be the only four-legged member. He has a tendency to vocalize everything he needs and is incredibly smart.
Stache would do best in a home without cats, small children or elderly. He will need a home where his people are with him a lot and give him a job to do. He needs a great deal of patience and socialization where he does not have to compete with other dogs. He is just learning how to be in the house and in a crate, and is learning a bunch of new things (dishwashers are scary as are bathrooms – but he figured out the bed just fine 😉 ). He will need to go to obedience training immediately following adoption and must be exercised multiple times a day.
Stache is adjusting well to city life and seems to enjoy being in the house. He walks through the house like he owns the place 🙂 He is no longer afraid of the different textures of flooring, although he still hates the vacuum (but what Airedale doesn’t). He loves to play ball and run around the yard watching everything that goes by and chases leaves in that sweet puppy way. He has such exuberance for people and is still learning to not jump up on them. He is really sweet and once he’s gotten a lot of attention, he settles down and is happy to follow you from room to room. He definitely prefers to be with people and gets extremely excited with other animals. He definitely cannot be with cats or small dogs, he loves chasing everything and I’m sure would think of cats or small dogs as a great new toy.
