Zeus's Story...
Zeus has come a long way from the scrawny boy that lived outside, chained to a doghouse. He weighs about 70 pounds now and is in excellent health. He is fully house trained, sits for food (treats and meals) and knows he’s not allowed on the furniture (although he sneaks on one couch occasionally). Zeus does well on leash (no formal obedience training) but does get a bit excited when he sees other dogs (or deer, squirrels, etc.). He does well meeting people (including little ones) when properly introduced. He is a little reserved with strangers and takes some time to check them out. Zeus needs a fenced yard although we get by with lots of walking (at least two miles per day). He would be at his best as an only dog (he thrives on attention) although he’d probably be ok with a more passive dog if introduced slowly. Better to not be with small children, while he has been fine meeting my grandsons (5 and 6) and neighborhood kids, Zeus plays hard and doesn’t know his own strength. Dog knowing kids over 12 should be fine. Zeus would benefit from obedience training in his new forever home. He’s a very bright boy and when you have his trust, he’s very anxious to please. Zeus will be a great addition to his new family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zeus, a Howell Airedale Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Airedale Terrier for sale in Howell, or seeking a Airedale Terrier dog from a breeder in Howell.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Howell already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Howell breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Airedale Terrier breeders who help with Airedale Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Howell paves the way for another one to be saved.
