Missy is a BIG beautiful Airedale girl (75#). Sadly, at the age of 7 years, she lost the only home she had known because one of her owners died and the other had to move into a home where Missy was not welcome. She is very affectionate and loves meeting new people. She is easy to walk and doesn’t react to other dogs. She loves to play with other dogs and is a noisy player.
She loves playing with toys. She would like you to throw them for her and play tug. Typical of most Airedales, she does not fetch! She loves to have you spray her with water. She wants to grab the hose, so you need to toss a toy to keep her from doing that. She may like swimming (we don’t have a pool to test that).
She is playful, but calm. She is fostered with other Airedales and someone who is home most of the time, but we believe she would probably be fine on her own during the day if you work as long as you have the time before and after work to give her lots of attention. She would probably be fine with older children who know how to treat an older gal gently.
Missy is sensitive about having her feet and hind end touched by strangers. Now that she has gotten to know her foster mom, she LOVES being massaged, but you need to let vets and groomers know they should be cautious.
Missy is currently located in Tucson, Arizona. She is spayed, housebroken, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. She requires medication for spay incontinence.
